This year during internet week in New York there was a “Venture Capital Bootcamp” event. Venture capitalists from DFJ Gotham Ventures and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati came to Columbia University and participated.
It was a great event, very informative and the presenters took an interesting approach to telling everyone about how VCs think and work.

Check out the video of the whole talk below! The presenters go overview of the VC industry, the venture capital fundraising process, company formation types (LLC, corporations, etc.), term sheets, and what to do after investment. There’s also a discussion about whether VC funding is right for you and your business as well.
The video runs just over three hours and you can listen to the audio while working.
