About the course
Running a business is very different from investing in one. So how do you make money from investing in early stage startups? What sets successful Silicon Valley investors apart? Should you pick your own investments or rely on a professional? How do you increase the probability that your early stage investments will generate outsized returns? In this course, students will learn how to source quality deal flow, ask the right questions before making an investment (due diligence), conduct negotiations, support portfolio companies through the lifecycle, and enable highly profitable liquidity events. Beyond these critical pre-investment topics, the course will cover post-investment topics including governance, fundraising, and exit. Students will also learn to recognize different segments of investors and their sometimes conflicting interests. The course will combine lectures and Q&A sessions with guest speakers. Students will be encouraged to bring their own case studies. Beginning and experienced investors (please, no entrepreneurs) are invited to enroll.
