Founded in 2021, the SSC Venture Studio is committed to investing in innovative student-led startups at Boston College. We aim to bring disruptive ideas to life and ignite rapid growth within Chestnut Hill's entrepreneurial ecosystem.



Experienced SSC Venture Studio Associates teach analysts the ins and outs of the venture capital industry, including approaches to early-stage investing and current trends.


Venture studio analysts source and conduct due diligence on early-stage startups within the Boston College student community.


Venture studio will invite student startups whose business criteria and mission aligns with our investment thesis to pitch in-house and the studio will fill out investment forms to decide whether to invest.

Our Process

Have an idea you want to build or have a company you would like to grow? Reach out below and we will set up a meeting with one of our experienced sourcing teams led by our Senior Analysts.
Studio Meeting
After our first conversation, we will conduct a holistic review of your venture, and provide personalized feedback and recommendations for your entrepreneurial journey.
Next Steps
