“I am so grateful to GradFUTURES for coordinating the Venture Capital and Startups cohort. It’s a great way to quickly learn the core tenets of the funding ecosystem for entrepreneurs, even if just to learn the jargon and dip our first feet into the lingo of financiers and venture capitalists.” 

Abraham (Avi) Wolf, GS, CBE
