Frequently Asked Questions
While Venzur is primarily intended for high school students, it is also open to college students, exceptional middle school students, and young adults looking to pitch in. We want people of all experience and age levels to be able to add value to the community and gain from all that Venzur has to offer.
Institutions, camps, or businesses that want to join Venzur should contact us individually.
We understand how important it is that your ideas remain the property of solely you, so we have mechanisms in place to keep them safe. When posting ideas, we encourage you to limit how much detail you provide; put enough detail to interest people, but not so much that someone else can easily copy your idea. Further, with Venzur being a platform primarily for high-achieving students, there is more integrity on the site than on the internet in general. You can trust that the people seeing your ideas are honest fellow students who are simply looking to help.
Your profile is the place to show just how accomplished and skilled you are. Along with basic info such as your grade, location, and education, you should add a variety of previous experiences that you’ve had; think of it almost like a resume. You’ll want to include past business experience, academic achievements, and anything else that could make you stand out as someone worth working with.
Venzur is fully compatible with almost all modern browsers, including ones on both mobile and desktop. However, we find that the site is easiest to use on a computer, so we’d recommend logging on from one when you can to have the smoothest experience possible. We have plans down the line to make a Venzur app, which would improve the mobile experience, but it is not available at the moment.
Venzur was founded and is run by high school and college students around the world. The idea for Venzur arose from the fact that we were given no instruction or help when it came to getting our business ideas off the ground and turning them into realities.
Yes, you are able to change your username after you register. However, your profile URL will not change; it will always include the original username that you chose.
If you are expecting an email from Venzur but it hasn’t shown up, this could be for several reasons. These include: it may have went to your spam or junk folder, it may take a few minutes to deliver, or you may have made a typo in your email address.
A username may not be available if it has already been taken by another user, includes profane language, or contains words or phrases that are prohibited.
