  1. Investment Strategies – Design a thesis, strategy and timeline for success
  2. The Investment Process – Explore the end-to-end process of an individual deal and define the path to your next investment
  3. Measuring Startup Success – Use an angel investor lens to assess startup potential
  4. Deal Mechanics – Get a closer look at the technical side of deals in venture investing
  5. Decoding Investor Decks – Get a closer look at the technical side of slide decks in venture investing

You’ll also participate in a live investment lab to synthesize your learnings and test your readiness for investment and receive 90 days access to our online investor studio.

Meet Your Instructor

“Venture capital is a historically difficult industry to break into. The lack of diversity that exists within the ecosystem creates an even higher barrier for minorities and individuals with non-traditional backgrounds. The most important thing we can do for our network is create the conditions for them to gain meaningful experiences, drive relevant opportunities and develop their own strategy for startup investing.”

– Marlon Thompson, CXO of Spring & Your Instructor
