A unique opportunity to shape your vision,
maximize your capital's efficiency
... and impact the world
We live in a hyper-developing, high-tech, fast-paced, computerized, scientific, technological social order and an interconnected global economy continually evolving around us.

Great investors not only feel the cutting edge, but help create it. They are deeply interconnected, know the intricacies of how to choose, build and support the right teams, technologies and markets. They have a strong sense of the evolving investment landscape around them.

Seize this unique opportunity to catch this 'edge', build on your years of experience in business and technology. Refine you passion, vision and unique differentiators. Take a deep dive into the world of venture capital along with a incredible network of top Silicon Valley and global investors.
Intimate, 'blended learning' approach
Highly flexible, to fit your busy schedule. Closed-door, so we can delve into the intimate details. Highly practical, refining your current portfolio thesis or exploding a new one. Far-reaching, as we lean from and work with some of the best minds in the business.
What are key trends that drive transformation of your particular verticals, and the venture industry? Who are the big thinkers, who set trends rather than follow them? Refine and articulate our vision, vis-a-vis the global investment landscape.
What is the venture landscape, how is it evolving, who are key players and how do they access the best opportunities? We share our own thinking, and explore this global ecosystem with some of the top minds in the industry. We not only predict but help create the future.
How do top players form venture funds, how do they form and vet pipelines, make decisions, provide maximal value, manage portfolios and exits? What are classic formulas - and why? And what are the new schemas, next wave?
What are various investment stratagies, how will you formulate the one that fits your objectives? How do you gain the key differentiators, critical advantages that drive your portfolio ... and ultimately affect teams, markets and sometimes entire industries?
"Insiders" techniques
What are varieties of ways to technically structure, manage and close funds. How to fundraise, who are key LPs, corporates, family offices, HNI, others sources? What are new vehicles, approaches, technologies? Which 'stack' best fits your objectives?
Probably the key to all truly successful funds: Grow your local and global network, invest along with top players around the world ... as well as the secret 'niche' and local players that carry deepest insights and deliver powerful results.
Highly practical
All our work creates concrete deliverables: Powerful portfolio thesis, LP decks, marketing materials, effective fundraising, teams, vetting processes, and much else. At the end of the program you have a Fund ready to go, or your current Fund raised to a whole new level.
Something magical happens when you put some of the world's most innovative minds in a single room

Чтобы принять участие, надо получить приглашение. The program is by invitation, referral or recommendation only. We are sharing powerful, highly nuanced 'insiders' investment technology & networks from some of the top investors in the world. All program participants are carefully vetted.
ноябрь - декабрь
"Closed Doors" Intro sessions
We meet offline to go over the entire structure of the course, detailed curriculum, do a fast review of fundamental formulations of Corporate Investing, Venture Investing, and Angel Investing. Focus is on the 'front end' - on portfolio performance definitions, pipeline creation, vetting structures, and investment decision structures. We hear live startup pitches right away, provide feedback and get feedback on the feedback. We articulate portfolio theses. We participate in nightly working sessions with top global investors - micro-lectures, detailed Q&A. And, of course, we meet our extraordinary colleagues!
ноябрь - декабрь
Online w/ Kauffman Fellows & Brad Feld
We launch into a carefully structured online Kauffman Fellows course on Investing, designed especially for us. We review the fundamentals, refine investment thesis, build pipeline and vetting structures. We meet online weekly, correspond daily.
17 декабря - 20 декабря
"Closed Door" Session

We meet offline together to review the 'front end,' present real-life results. Then we focus on the 'back end": fund management, fundraising, financials, team dynamics, liquidity events, acquisitions and other exits. We look at the technical fine-points of fund creation, fund-raising, tax, reporting, LP relations, and other highly practical fine-points. We prepare LP decks, Corporate proposals, or personal investment thesis.
декабрь - январь
Online w/ Kauffman Fellows & Brad Feld
We continue our online Kauffman Fellows course on fundamentals and match with personal mentors from top funds, corporates, accelerators and angel groups such as Y Combinator, Khosla,, Keiretsu, and Slack. We finalize and test investment thesis, continue pipeline building. Meet online weekly, correspond daily.
14 - 19 января
Silicon Valley
We spend a week (or more) in the Valley itself, meeting our mentors in -person, building network with some of the top venture, angel and corporate funds in the world. These are in-person and closed-door meetings, where they share some of their internal techniques, approaches and pipelines. We also spend time with LPs and share our portfolio thesis and funds. Wine tasting in Napa, sailing on the Bay, surfing in the Pacific etc included, of course.

Y Combinator Investors School
We work with Y Combinator in-person at their office in Mountain View, CA. YC believes that the more great investors there are the more chance startups have to succeed. There are lots of hard and sometimes non-intuitive things to do to be a great investor. We'll review how to get started, how much to invest, choosing the right company in which to invest, decisions-making, building dealflow, portfolio construction and management, and much more. This leads up to Y Combinator's famous Demo Days in March, where YC's latest batch of startups present their companies to a room full of investors.
Meet, learn from & work with some of the best investors in Silicon Valley ... and around the world
