Interested in taking your startup to the next level?
The Bronco Ventures Accelerator (BVA) empowers Santa Clara University entrepreneurs with the tools, accountability, and community to develop and grow for-profit businesses with competence, conscience, and compassion. The accelerator is industry- and stage-agnostic. The cohort system used by the BVA provides a terrific platform for a small set of teams to attend high-energy, interactive classes and workshops, led by industry leaders. Participants truly have the opportunity to hone their entrepreneurial skills.
BVA concludes with Demo Day - an exciting shark-tank-like event at which BVA teams pitch to investors - each October.
