We are excited and honored to announce the talented members of Cohort 7, who will work with us to identify and support founders building the next generation of startups.
We started the Venture Scout program in 2020 with the goal of helping aspiring angel investors learn more about early-stage investing and becoming an active participant in the VC community. . After successfully onboarding six cohorts of our Venture Scouts, we know that there is massive demand among emerging angel investors and young professionals to learn the “behind the scenes” of venture capital, to build their own portfolio of investments, and to help founders beyond sourcing capital. To meet this demand, for each cohort we hold a series of in-depth discussions and educational sessions. The topics covered include deal sourcing, evaluating startups and markets, partnering with early-stage founders, and Grishin Robotics’ investment framework.
Our Venture Scouts link us with emerging founding teams that they encounter in the entrepreneurial community. Many of our Venture Scouts are past, present, or future founders – we learn a lot from them and value their input both at the stage of investment and during the ongoing startup journey. Our Venture Scouts, together with our team of Senior Advisors, form strong bonds with both entrepreneurs and other VC investors.
