The Anderson Venture Accelerator offers 10,000 square feet of active learning environment designed to facilitate the launch of UCLA-affiliated ventures with practical experiences that complement the academic pursuits of UCLA students and alumni from the schools of business, engineering and medical/life sciences, as well as students in the undergraduate minor in entrepreneurship. The space features the Jim Freedman Pitch Deck room, 6 call rooms, 8 large conference rooms, 4 small conference rooms, a kitchen area for receptions, and 4,000 square feet of co-working space for our companies. The large conference rooms and co-working space offers state-of-the-art Mondo screens for presentations to larger audiences or global networking needs.
As part of the Price Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Accelerator offers a three-tiered program that focuses on supporting the development of student led startups, connecting these ventures with Anderson alumni and mentors, and collaborating with industry and media partners to develop cutting-edge programming and enhance awareness of UCLA’s entrepreneurial ecosystem by sharing the inspirational stories of these ventures.
In the co-working space, we offer a robust six month programming slate including monthly mentor meet-ups, weekly speaker workshops, Entrepreneur in Residence weekly office hours, and daily connecting to the Anderson community to provide privileged access to our companies to assist in their path to success, faster.
