At GoingVC, we're building a venture capital ecosystem to launch VC careers, invest in exceptional founders, and provide access to high quality dealflow for angel investors.
GoingVC will help you build the skills, network, and experience you need to get hired in the venture capital industry or launch your own fund.
GoingVC Angels is a network of accredited investors who receive high quality, competitive dealflow from GoingVC Partners.
I was pleasantly surprised through the program, overall around the 5 core pillars of the GoingVC program, the network being the main reason I joined, but also the education and opportunity was incredible as well. The private Slack group has been helpful during my search where job opportunities are posted on a daily basis. I was studying VC in a big way but the GoingVC curriculum heightened that awareness, especially for me, given my expertise was in early stage finance.
I did the 1 year MBA program at Stanford and I still found GoingVC very valuable, despite having done plenty of courses in entrepreneurship and investing. What I found particularly useful was the community - not just that you join a great network that you can ask questions from but also a safe space for networking, whether it's for learning more about VC or looking for jobs in the space.
By Fall 2021, I was accepted into the @Going_VC fellowship where I completed a phenomenal 16-week educational program that helps to prepare participants for a career in venture capital.
For those of you interested in working in venture capital, @Going_VC has been an amazing program and has connected me with great opportunities with VC's on the coasts. Launched by a fellow @ChicagoBooth MBA and @johnmgannon Applications are open! goingvc.applytojob.com/apply/4XmLkAG6...
