About the course

Upscale your portfolio management, fundraising and business management skills to take your VC firm or fund to the next level

The program will deliver the financial and management tools and share the expertise of seasoned practitioners to build, manage and grow a VC firm. This uniquely comprehensive program covers everything you need to know to scale your VC fund or firm to the next level. It covers the main challenges investors face when building and running a VC firm, and managing the portfolio. Expert practitioners will share proven methodologies and their insights on how to define a VC firm’s value proposition and investment strategy, structure the fund, raise the funds, build strong relationships with LPs, manage the portfolio, create value, set up an effective monitoring and reporting system, and compensate staff and partners, among other topics.
