The Carlson Ventures Enterprise (CVE) gives students the opportunity to navigate the world of entrepreneurship and its unique challenges. Students learn to understand its uncertainties, risks and opportunities. Our projects are mission-critical to the sponsors who support us, providing our students with an opportunity to make a real impact for the client.
CVE associates work with leading companies as they develop new concepts and businesses under real life circumstances. To complement project work, our curriculum discusses the world of venture capital and risk investing; explores innovation and creative problem solving; and gives students tools for analyzing business plans and presenting their ideas. We bring leading entrepreneurs, investors, and business development professionals into the classroom, giving students the opportunity to expand their network and learn what makes a venture successful.
