Venture Deals Online Course – 2017

The Venture Deals Online Course for this spring starts this Sunday May 14, 2017 and runs through July 3, 2017.  The Kauffman Fellows Academy and Techstars are co-hosting the course. It’s free – all you need to do is sign up.

This is the fifth time we are running the course. So far more than 5,000 people around the globe have done it and we’ve gotten to meet and collaborate with entrepreneurs from six continents.

While our book Venture Deals: Be Smarter Than Your Lawyer and Venture Capitalist is the basis for the course, we have extensive exercises, additional content, and a highly engaged community to answer questions. Jason and I make regular visits, both in the online discussion sections as well as periodic AMAs. In addition, the team from Techstars is also engaging throughout the program.

If you are interested in entrepreneurship and how startup deals work, here’s a great chance to go deep on this with me, Jason, Kauffman Fellows, and Techstars.

  • I did the course last year. Great experience !

    • I did it in October 2014 — it was helpful, even though I’m not looking to raise money; I just wanted to understand.
