VC University LIVE Midwest Details

VC University LIVE

[email protected] and NVCA launched VC University, a new educational program, with the goal of democratizing access to education on venture finance in startup ecosystems across the country. VC University LIVE takes places in emerging ecosystems across the country. The inaugural LIVE program with the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan will take place on May 15-17 in Ann Arbor.

Midwest and Michigan

The Midwest is the first stop of VC University LIVE for several reasons, including the burgeoning startup ecosystems in the region, strong academic institutions, and the strategic location and proximity to a large part of the country’s population.
