Two years ago I was challenged to manage a private equity firm investing in early-stage startups. I had an entrepreneurial background and business development skills, but not much knowledge of the venture capital area. Looking for a comprehensive course of study to better understand the nuts and bolts of a venture capital firm’s operations, I found the only one which matched my needs and covered a broad spectrum of the topics needed: VC.Academy. I’ve started applying what I’ve learned in the VC Executive course from the very first days of study. The program helps me to become a better professional. It will definitely help others. Worth every dollar invested.

Being in corporate innovation and investment roles I already had a baseline knowledge about a lot of topics covered in the academy. However, it was very valuable to do a deep dive into areas that matter most in VC roles such as legal frameworks and evaluating deals at different levels. The biggest value was structuring and deepening my existing knowledge and enriching it with new perspectives on investing.

VC Academy provides the most essential and valuable information on venture investing, modern trends and latest developments in the startup industry. It makes a meaningful contribution to the success of its students and subscribers.
I made a transition from a Fixed Income Analyst to an Investment Associate in Corporate Venture Capital. VC Academy materials have added an immense amount of knowledge in weeks. Thank you for providing so much value.
The articles and information on private equity and venture capital which I've been learning from the VC Academy have been really enlightening and helpful. I share them with other VC and PE legal practitioners like me. I applaud you and the team for your efforts.
