I highly recommend the VC Academy Venture Capital Executive Program as an invaluable resource for anyone looking to pursue a career in VC and startups. No matter your background, the program is a great tool to understand the basic requirements needed in order to succeed in various rules within the industry such as your skill set and knowledge base. Moreover, the program is extremely flexible and allows you to work at your own pace. It also helps you to adopt a personalized career plan and to better understand whether this is really a fit for you. I find the information and assignments both interesting and challenging, and I am very grateful I decided to give the program a chance.
