Let the good times roll! NVCA and the UC Berkeley School of Law’s Startup@BerkeleyLaw initiative are hosting our second VC University LIVE in the South with the A. B.

VC University LIVE South is a three-day in-person program with several goals, including shining a spotlight on the South’s startup ecosystem, convening industry leaders in the South and the coasts, offering education to newer entrants to VC (e.g., cap table labs, VC terms and processes, mock deal negotiation), and discussing advanced issues in VC (e.g. case studies, public policy issues). We invite you to join us in September in New Orleans! (more…)
