Palihapitiya Venture Creation Fund

The Palihapitiya Venture Creation Fund provides two $50,000 awards to University-selected Capstone Design teams whose intention is to transform their Capstone Design project into a promising startup post-graduation. 

Created in 2014, the Palihapitiya Venture Creation Fund is a gift from Chamath Palihapitiya, Waterloo Engineering alumnus and founder of Social Capital, a venture capital fund that aims to solve the world’s hardest problems by starting and investing in breakthrough companies in healthcare, education, financial services, consumer and enterprise.
