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.

How do I get started?

If you’d like to comp Harvard Ventures, please fill out this form to join our Fall 2019 comp mailing list and add our Google Calendar to stay up-to-date with all of our comp events and socials. Comp events are typically on Thursdays 5:30pm every week but if there are any changes, we will communicate them via email, GroupMe, and Facebook. If you have any questions or cannot attend an event, please reach out to our Director of Events, Georgia Messinger.
