Stanford Venture Studio

The Stanford Venture Studio is a vibrant learning facility for Stanford graduate students across all disciplines who want to learn about designing and creating sustainable, high-impact ventures by testing what they are learning in the classroom. The Stanford Venture Studio provides a supportive, resourced environment, where students benefit from being immersed in the Stanford entrepreneurial community.
