Launching the Venture Cooperative’s Second Cohort
In June of last year, we launched this first-of-its-kind program with 150+ Venture Fellows and 30+ Venture Operators. Participants in our first cohort spanned 20+ geographies, and over 60% identified as underrepresented in some way. Over the course of the program, we dove into the mechanics of early stage startup investing, managing venture funds, and leveraging innovative new funding models to support startups at the earliest stages. Perhaps most importantly, we provided hundreds of people with the opportunity to participate in investment meetings, earn upside in our fund, and make LP investments without prohibitively high minimums.
To the guest speakers who graciously shared their time and unfiltered insights with our community — thank you!
