Venture Capital, a new program from Wharton Executive Education, will lift the veil on one of the most exciting and perhaps least transparent areas in finance. Designed for investors and entrepreneurs alike, participants will come away with a greater understanding of the key drivers in the venture capital industry, and learn about the non-financial factors affecting a start-up or early stage company’s valuation.

This program is ideal for both those who invest capital — such as angel investors, as well as general and limited partners — and entrepreneurs seeking funding for their companies in their early stages of growth. Led by Finance Professor Bilge Yilmaz, who is joined by other Wharton faculty, the program’s classroom experience will be further enriched by alumni guest speakers who will participate in the discussions.
