Launched in 2019 by NVCA, Venture Forward, and Startup@BerkeleyLaw at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, VC University democratizes access to education on venture capital for entrepreneurs, investors, attorneys, or anyone else interested in emerging company finance across the country.
VC University has two components:
An online certificate program and in-person events with local university partners in emerging ecosystems in the U.S.
1. The VC University ONLINE certificate program offers 20+ hours of online materials for participants to learn the nuts and bolts of venture finance and earn a certificate of completion, with lectures, interviews with leading venture capitalists, interactive assessments, live office hours, and monthly Lunch & Learn webinars.
General registration for the upcoming February 2022 cohort opens on December 13. Learn more and receive notifications.
2. VC University LIVE shines a spotlight on emerging startup ecosystems; convenes local industry leaders and VC leaders from the coasts; offers education to newer entrants to VC; and addresses advanced industry issues, including how to improve capital and talent flows between the local ecosystems and Silicon Valley.
