Comp

What is a “comp?”

A "comp" is simply a "prolonged application" to a campus organization at Harvard.  The term probably came from the word competition or competence, but either way, you'll probably participate in a lot of them during your time here to get involved with extracurriculars. There's a Crimson article on it if you want to learn more.

How does one comp Harvard Ventures?

The comp is divided into three 3-week tracks on Founding, Investing (Venture Capital), and Business Development. We do make cuts, but if you participate, provide some insight, and genuinely show us that you want to be in this club, you should have no problem.
