NETWORK WITH VENTURE CAPITALISTS
The competition in the venture capital job market is tremendous, and we truly believe that the industry needs to breed a new generation of venture investors. Unlock your talent with our guidance and support. We created the Venture Capital Associate Program to make you stand out among your peers, while also providing you with the best value for the time and money you spend.
YOU WANT TO WORK IN VENTURE CAPITAL, BUT…
☹ You have been applying for a job in venture capital, but aren't receiving any responses...
☹ ... Or you have chatted with potential employers on the phone, but aren’t getting invited to face-to-face interviews...
☹ ... Maybe none of the interviews you’ve had have resulted in a job offer.
YOU’RE ALREADY EMPLOYED BY A VC FIRM, BUT…
☹ You feel like you lack some knowledge here and there to show everything you are capable of...
☹ ... But your colleagues don't have enough time to teach you everything you wish to know...
☹ ... Or maybe you would prefer to obtain the necessary qualification on your own.
WE HAVE A SOLUTION FOR YOU!
The Venture Capital Associate Program is designed to achieve two main goals:
☑ Help you stand out as a candidate at every step
☑ Save your employer time on educating you for the job
WHY YOU SHOULD ENROLL
First — work directly with venture capitalists during the Program. You will be surrounded by active VCs along the way. We will assign you a personal tutor who will guide you through the entire program. The authors of the modules will hold special sessions to address your unanswered questions. Finally, attend our graduation events in person or online to network with venture capitalists and other students.
Second — the content. The curriculum of the Venture Capital Associate Program is based on the analysis of 700+ job descriptions of the following positions: intern, analyst, associate, investment manager/specialist, and business development manager. When a new job opening is posted, we check how well our program covers all the knowledge and skill requirements mentioned in the description of this job. This is how we know that you will study exactly what is expected from you at work.
Third — the method. There is an endless stream of information on venture capital investing out there, which makes it impossible to pick only what truly matters. We asked neuroscientists to develop a proprietary teaching methodology, so that our students could achieve measurable results in 30, 60, and 90 days. The Program is scheduled in a certain way, so that you can memorize the most important lessons, develop critical habits, and perform your daily VC job better. We guarantee the best results if you follow the schedule, however, flexibility is one of our core values, so we will do our best to align our study plan with your current work schedule.
