Honing Professional Skillsets.

CVC gave me the opportunity to talk with people that I usually wouldn't at a level of heightened professionalism and insightfulness. By working with firms directly, you really get to learn the ropes of entrepreneurship and venture capital. CVC members really care about each other and will help wherever needed both professionally and personally.
