Venture Scouts

We started with the idea of helping the next generation of angel investors learn about investing and become part of our community. Today we are certain that young investors want to make educated investment decisions and support founders beyond the capital. 

Our

Venture scout

program includes a series of in-depth discussions and educational sessions with topics ranging from:

■ Deal sourcing advice;
■ Evaluating startups and markets;
Partnering with early-stage founders;
    and much more.

Our Community

We learned a lot by bringing together exceptional group of Senior Advisors and Venture Scouts, who generously share their knowledge with us and each other. These folks have helped us lay the foundation to build a strong community, and we hope to keep expanding the program in the future.
