About the group
Cardinal Ventures is the premier non-profit startup accelerator on the Stanford campus run by students, for students. The program was created in spring 2015 by Justine and Olivia Moore with the goal of helping support student-entrepreneurs at the earliest stage. By connecting founders to the greater Silicon Valley ecosystem, educating them on entrepreneurship and supporting them through their journey to create disruptive businesses at Stanford and beyond, Cardinal Ventures has grown into the home for student-founders.
Since Cardinal Ventures started in 2015, we have accelerated 68 companies and 160 founders in five cohorts. Alumni companies have gone on to raise $12M + in capital from angels and notable venture capital firms like Sequoia, First Round Capital, etc. and have been accepted into programs like Y Combinator, Techstars, etc.
