Frequently Asked Questions

You don’t need prior knowledge of Venture Capital to start the course. We cover the basics but also go into pretty advanced stuff. You will learn the most technical aspects with me, and I’ll also share the best sources around (the Blog is a good place to start.)

You can ask all your questions during the live mentoring sessions or via the platform’s messaging system.

Most of what I cover is advanced stuff that doesn’t exist anywhere else (a full video-based course explaining every clause in the term sheet?! That’s right).

Only the first module may be redundant, although I’m willing to bet you’ll learn something there too.  In any case, you can watch the self-videos at your own pace. 

I’ve recruited and trained many junior investors over the years, so I understand where you are when you’ve been less than 2-3 years into the job.

They are Zoom-based webinars where I address one specific topic every week. I usually hold them on Tuesdays at 5pm CET and they typically last 30 minutes to 45 minutes.

It’s a great forum to ask all your questions on Venture Capital, fundraising, startup life, and entrepreneurship in general. 

Live webinars are free and anyone can attend.

You can watch the Live Webinars in replay if you are part of the Full plan or the Extended plan (see the pricing above).

We have 3 online modules made of videos, quizzes, e-assignments, and tons of curated sources to learn more about each topic.

“What Do VCs Do” covers the full VC cycle, from generating deal flow, analyzing startups, monitoring portfolio companies and exiting them.

“VC Term Sheets” is a deep dive into term sheets and shareholders’ agreements: how they are  structured, what objectives VCs are trying to achieve , and a clause-by-clause explanation with negotiation tips.

“Startup Boards” is a unique module covering best practices to make a difference in Board meetings.

There are 3 live webinars delivered over Zoom: (1) How Do VC Funds Work, (2) Startup Financials & Valuation, and (3) Preferred Shares & SAFEs.

You will have assignments to complete to ensure you integrate the key learning points. They are based on tools that we provide: a VC Funds Projections model, a Cash Flow Forecast & Valuation template, and a  Preferred Shares & SAFEs model.

If you enrolled into the Extended plan, you get access to our weekly group coaching sessions to cover key learnings and comment on your deliverables.

We also analyze real-life startup pitches, which is an excellent way to share points of view and expertise.

Mentoring sessions are often the favorite part of the program for our participants, as I make sure you acquire as much as possible on the VC way.

(For Aspiring VCs).

I’ve recruited over a dozen professionals into private equity and have trained dozens more to get VC jobs.  Based on this expertise, the interview prep consists of a case study you need to complete in a limited amount of time.

We will then go over it together, so that you are ready when you take interviews with VC firms.

Here are some videos to show you my approach to training. Enjoy!
