StudVent is all about student ventures: student-led startups from academic institutions all over the world. The team at StudVent perceives that while there is a growing interest and an increase in resources for student entrepreneurship on campuses around the globe, it remains hard to find and learn more about the numerous actual student startup companies founded in the dorm rooms, boot camps, hackathons, accelerators, and incubators at universities.
