DEC 9TH, 2019 REVERSE DEMO DAY - New York City
DEC 11TH, 2019 REVERSE DEMO DAY - San Francisco
Venture University is an investor accelerator, so rather than having startups pitch at DEMO DAY, we're doing a REVERSE DEMO DAY where the investors within the cohort pitch why they made the investments they made to a room full of investors, startups, and strategics.
Venture University's Cohort 6 is made up of 29 investors that were sourced from over 5,000+ applications (~0.5% acceptance rate), and have formed four deal sourcing investment teams: Consumer, Enterprise & Healthcare, FinTech, and Frontier Tech. Over the next few months they will source ~5,000+ companies, conduct due diligence, and invest in 3-5 companies. Meet Venture University's Cohort 5.
Each investment team will share their key findings and insights from their due diligence for why they got excited about the market, the team, the solution and strategy, and some of the key traction and metrics that made them say "yes" to invest.
Cohort 6 includes three types of investors:
Why Attend REVERSE DEMO DAY?
Are you an investor? Perfect! If you're looking at hiring individuals now or in the future to join your investment team or you're looking to join a new fund yourself, the cohort includes a highly curated selection of individuals that are looking to join investment funds or launch their own funds. Also, you can learn about new markets and companies through the eyes of other investors.
Are you an entrepreneur? Perfect! Come meet our investment team. Whether you're raising capital for your current company (pitch Venture University's investment team), looking to join a new company (we can recommend positions available within our portfolio companies), or looking to partner with any of our portfolio companies (we can make intro's).
Are you a strategic? Perfect! Come learn about a few innovative companies that recently raised capital (they must be doing something right!) and see if there are any strategic partnerships or investment opportunities with these companies.
