The only fund made for student projects.
Bring your idea to life.
The LIL Venture Fund is the proud sponsor and organizer of the biannual IdeAction (Global Pitch Competition). Winners of this competition are awarded funding directly from the LVF.
Registration for the IdeAction Competition is now closed. The Competition will commence again around April 2024.
The LIL Venture Fund (LVF) is a permanent fixture in the LIL Universe to provide funding to promising student projects/organizations/ventures to assist in their growth and expansion.
This is the only venture fund in existence dedicated to funding high-school level student projects/organizations/ventures.
The LVF offers USD$10,000 of funding annually. There are two funding rounds per year - May and November - each offering up to USD$5000. Selection for funding is merit-based; student(s)/projects can be selected multiple times if merited.
Projects that have won funding are announced at the Spring and Fall Student Research & Innovation Showcases (May and November annually), respectively.
In the spirit of encouraging student entrepreneurship and innovation, the LVF sponsors and organizes the IdeAction (Global Pitch Competition) twice yearly, corresponding to the LVF’s biannual funding cycles.
Winners of this competition are awarded funding directly from the LIL Venture Fund. All high-school students are welcome to apply for funding.
Projects are selected based on:
The above selection criteria should serve as a broad guideline of how projects/organizations/ventures will be vetted. Since each project/organization/venture is necessarily unique, it is impossible to evaluate all using a standard universal criteria. Projects/ventures/organizations will be analyzed holistically and individually.
In addition to the ongoing support and monitoring that the LVF provides its awardees to ensure the greatest growth potential of projects under its wing, the LVF also provides a complimentary videography service.
Projects and organizations funded by the LVF are provided this service which they can use to make any video required: for instance, marketing videos, promotional clips, explanatory videos etc.
