The HHL Venture Capital Club

The HHL Venture Capital Club is an organisation founded by the students body of the HHL Graduate School of Management. Together, we follow the mission to provide a platform for a mutual exchange in the fields of entrepreneurship and venture capital.

What we are offering:

We are accomplishing our mission based on three pillars:

Learn

We create learning opportunities based on own content production and events. VCC of HHL stands for mastering bridge between theory and practice.

Connect

We bring together people from all members of the venture capital environment. We mount networking events and round table meetings.

Consult

We are happy to contribute our know-how in regards to pitch decks and venture-financing-related topics as independent advisor to aspiring entrepreneurs.

Overview of the VC Club Leipzig

Purpose

We aim to educate, connect and inspire the next generation of venture capitalists.
We provide a platform for students to discover the world of startup funding, learn about venture capital strategies, and build a network of like-minded peers and industry professionals.

Vision

We envision a future where our club’s activities contribute to the development of forward-thinking investors and visionary entrepreneurs within the global business landscape, solidifying our business school’s prominence in entrepreneurial excellence.

Mission

We aim to bridge the gap between classroom learning and real-world investment opportunities, ensuring that students graduate with a deep understanding of venture capital and its pivotal role in shaping the entrepreneurial landscape.

HHL is a breeding ground for entrepreneurs, but we also have many business angels and professional investors among our alumni. I see it as a great opportunity for students to learn more about the investor’s perspective – to prepare fpr own funding process or to evaluate alternative careers.
