How did VC Unlocked impact your confidence as an investor?

Three words describe what I gained from my VC Unlocked experience – network, knowledge,  and perspective.

What was the most important takeaway from the program that you implemented afterwards?

The importance of viewing the investment as a partnership and engaging with the founders and management team as partners.

What advice do you have for aspiring early stage investors who are considering the program?  

I would encourage them to take the program.  The information gained and materials shared are phenomenal.  The course provides you with an opportunity to learn directly from experienced investors with real life examples and build a global network with other participants in the course
