About Us

We catalyze technology innovation in organizations through collaborative, project-based learning.

GVC works with organizations to create customized programs for their innovation needs. We have developed a large, global community of highly-skilled technical students and professionals from top universities and corporations to help us out.

 

Together, we can assist organizations in professional upskill, MVP design & development, diverse Gen-Z recruiting, data science projects, and more.

Global Venture Catalyst was founded by leading faculty, Ikhlaq Sidhu, Mike Grandinetti, and Paris de L'Etraz in the fall of 2020. We are powered by the Innovation Engineering framework, which was developed at UC Berkeley.
