About this event

This 1.5-day conference, developed in collaboration with NVCA’s CFO Taskforce, focuses on the critical role senior operations professionals play in venture firms, and how they can provide value back to their partnerships. The agenda emphasizes best practices, technical topics, professional development, and industry-related policy content -and of course – several opportunities for networking.

Participants will have the opportunity to develop functional expertise, share best practices, troubleshoot shared challenges, expand their network, and earn CPE credit hours for attending.
