Head of PROGRAMME

Campus Capital is a VC firm that builds early stage, high growth investment funds in partnership with some of the UK's leading universities. These funds are based on campus and are part-run by active students with the guidance and supervision of the Campus Capital board. This structure enables us to be part of the fabric of each university, allowing us to nurture entrepreneurial talent and truly add value to companies before and after making an investment.

Here, I work closely with the CEO and COO to help define and improve our student VC programme as we continue to roll it out across the UK and beyond.

• Identify university partners and secure new commercial relationships
• Source potential sponsorship and partnership opportunities and pitching to relevant companies
• Define enrolment strategies to select exceptional, diverse student VCs
• Work with the wider team to activate the Campus Capital stakeholder community
