Within a few years of its creation, a venture firm goes through its most vulnerable stage — a stage that determines its ultimate success or failure.

The curriculum of the AVM Program is balanced between theory and application, and emphasizes participation and practice in business clinics, case studies, and business plan development, thereby enhancing problem-solving and adaptive ability.
