Event Description
The Venture Capital and Startup learning cohort connects an interdisciplinary group of graduate students interested in learning about the world of VC and startups in a casual environment. This is a great crash course for graduate students who are simply curious.

Whether students are interested in researching the world of VCs and startups, forming their own or joining one, understanding the landscape and how the various sources of funding work to get a startup off the ground is essential.

Led by Managing Directors of Fitz Gate Ventures, Jim Cohen '86 and Mark Poag '93, this series will meet for five sessions throughout the year. Invited guests including alumni working in startups or spinouts and professionals on campus who support the entrepreneurial ecosystem will be included in each session to connect graduate students to the opportunities available to them.
