Hawke scout Program

We are committed to helping make the venture capital world more diverse, inclusive, and equitable. We are here to turn future leaders into venture capitalists.

Program Overview

The Hawke Ventures Scout Program teaches and trains postgraduate students interested in breaking into venture capital through critical discussions, readings, and community building activities.

As part of the scout program, you will have the opportunity to source deals, build strong relationships with industry leaders, sharpen your thinking towards existing business problems, and help shape the future of what diversity, equity, and inclusion looks like in the venture capital world. In addition, if Hawke decides to proceed with any investment prospect, you will have the opportunity to manage and close the investment and become a venture partner.
