10,000 Entrepreneurs (10KE) was started by venture firm Alumni Ventures Group (AVG) in 2019 to foster development of a deeper entrepreneurial ecosystem. We’re beginning by helping college students pursue entrepreneurial projects and careers through our 10KE Internship Grant
Our goal is to encourage undergrads to explore entrepreneurship, in its broadest form, regardless of their ultimate career choices.
We understand that it’s often easier to follow the well-traveled road and pursue a career in law, medicine, banking, or consulting. We want to support those who are interested in exploring a path that may be less familiar or lucrative at first, but can ultimately be exceptionally rewarding for both individuals and society.
