Break Into Private Equity and Venture Capital

It’s impossible to land a job in private equity or venture capital without real work experience. Most times, when you apply, you never hear back. The number ONE reason why is because another candidate just had slightly a bit more experience. Our program allows you to learn the theory, but then get hands on interactive experience by joining a Private Equity / VC firm with a team of experienced investors. You get experience presenting real potential investment opportunities to an investment committee to get candid feedback. We surround you with a network of 3-4 private meetings with investors every week to get mentored and also get help with your resume and mock interviews to land a fulltime job in Private Equity and Venture Capital.

Learn The Theory

We teach the critical foundations needed to be successful in Private Equity and Venture Capital. Along with knowing the soft skills to connect with the right deals and co-investors, it is very important to build a strong theory in developing an investment thesis. In addition, it’s important to develop a knowledge in financial modeling, analyzing financial statements, funding rounds, cap tables, valuation, and return analysis. We go through all these advanced concepts and ensure that you have all the right skills in your toolkit to be both prepared and successful. See the Syllabus Below.

Join the Investment Team

Once you Learn the theory, you are ready to join the investment team and present to the investment committee every Monday with fully practitioning private equity and venture capital investors. We surround you with a network of 3-4 private meetings with investors every week to get mentored and build the critical skills and experience to be a top candidate when you are applying to jobs or thinking about starting your own fund eventually. This is conveniently done part time online and even if you miss anything, it’s recorded.
