IT'S TIME TO CHANGE THAT.

Dipper Research Partners is an unpaid part-time, writing-intensive fellowship for diverse aspiring VCs who are still in school. Each quarter, Dipper partners co-create investment theses with real VC mentorship.
This year, Mac Conwell of RareBreed VC is also recruiting scouts directly from the program.
Cohort 1 (January 27th, 2021 - April 23rd, 2021) applications are now OPEN!

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS.

Over the course of 12-14 weeks, you and a team of fellow student researchers will:

  • Take a deep dive into a high-growth market

  • Perform due diligence on startups in the space

  • Hear from VCs and industry experts

  • Track the news for key updates

Each week, your team will be responsible for writing an update compiling information on your diligence and any relevant market news and submitting those updates to our partner VCs.

Throughout the fellowship, you'll use the diligence you've performed and the research you've conducted to produce your own investment thesis on your group's market of focus.

You'll graduate from your cohort with new skills in VC and a tangible and well-researched thesis to call your own.

VC is hard to break into.

Especially if you're an underrepresented student.
