Why is the class valuable?

Venture capital can be complicated, so it's worth it to learn everything you can about requirements, restrictions, and applicable laws. It is also a niche topic, with little comparable courses in the market, especially at the same pricing. Whether you're looking to become a venture capitalist yourself or you have a startup idea and want to get more educated on the process of securing funding, this Polaris Masterclass is designed to get you on your way. This course is offered in partnership with leading thinkers and experts in the field. You'll be able to participate on your own time without having to leave your house.

Post Masterclass Review

"Great walkthrough for the homework assignment and leaving us plenty of options to explore the material more in-depth by ourselves."

"It covered a wide range of the basics of Python and provided relevant examples to explain. The overall presentation and contents are easy to understand and easy to pick up. 

Looking forward to more complex and flexible usage of Python in data analysis."

"The lessons on Bloomberg and other databases are really useful for me. Even though I cannot have any hands-on experiences by using Bloomberg Terminals, these knowledge and demonstration can help a lot to build a good foundation for my future career!"

"Personally, I find the lessons interesting as it shows us the approach in which consultants uses to solve problems. The live session with Mike's sharing also helps us to know more about the consulting industry, which can be quite difficult to do so unless you know someone in the industry itself."
