Investor @ Avesta Fund

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.

It's incredible the amount of resources that GoingVC has - the reading materials, the exercises, the community. I think it really made a difference in me being able to break into the industry.

VC Investor @ GC1 Ventures

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.

I saw the quality of the curriculum - and even though I went to business school I would even go in so far as saying that GoingVC's curriculum is on par if not better than top business schools.
