About INSEAD Workshop
In the workshop we will take a closer look at Venture Capital, Business Angels and Startups.
For venture capitalists or a business angel, you learn how to identify high-performing start-ups and how to help make them successful.
For those who are, or are thinking about being in a startup, you learn how to get offers from venture capitalists, how to choose among these, and how do you ensure you get the most out of the relationship with your investor.
Type of Questions to Expect
The following video gives you a feeling for the type of questions we will discuss:
INSEAD Professor Henning Piezunka interviews Kleiner Perkins partner Randy Komisar on how venture capitalists make decisions. To learn more about entrepreneurship and venture capital, you can take the class New Business Ventures at INSEAD.
You learn about cutting edge research, conduct group work with your peers in break out sessions, and learn about recent trends in the industry.
The workshops last 3 hours and takes place via Zoom.
