About us

Established in 2018, Nova Venture Capital & Private Equity (VCPE) club is a student group that aims to bridge the gap between students at Nova School of Business and Economics and professionals from the VC and PE industry. We provide a platform for networking and education for students who are passionate about the world of private capital. Our goal is to enable our members to successfully land their dream internship or full-time position in the VC and PE ecosystem.


Our newsletter provides insights on current issues in the VC and PE industry. We share analyses on pressing trends, recent deals, and exciting businesses. During the semester, we publish our newsletter on a weekly basis.


Nova VCPE organizes different types of events: social, corporate, and training. We arrange panel discussions and talks with guest speakers and lecturers. Additionally, we provide workshops on fundamentals needed in the VC and PE industry.


Being part of Nova SBE's active community means supporting each other's goals and ambitions. Thus, we partner with the school's student union as well as school officials directly. Moreover, we realize projects with external partners.


Building and maintaining your network is key for your future career. Nova VCPE supports members in this aspect by extensively sharing knowledge and experience within the club and its alumni community. Additionally, each member gets assigned an alumnus/-a as a dedicated mentor.

Study trips

Our first study trip was set to happen in March 2020. We organized meetings with VC investors and start-ups in Berlin. Although Covid-19 had us cancel the actual trip, we were able to conduct several of the talks virtually.

Market research

We provide market research and industry analyses for partnering PE funds. In this mutually beneficial exchange, our members get the chance to work on practical tasks and receive ongoing feedback and tips from industry professionals, while our partners enjoy the advantages of our pro-bono service.
