“The live conversations with instructors are priceless. And Brad Feld has been outstanding on this course."

“A course at a university would have charged $2,000 to $3,000 and likely not have the caliber of instructors."

In addition to professionals wanting to enter the venture capital field and entrepreneurs looking to raise venture capital funding, this course also benefits anyone who wants to learn more about financing, including lawyers, accountants, angel investors, bankers, policy makers, regulators and educators.
