‘My colleagues have often told me that I should follow the NVP Venture Capital Essentials. I'm glad I finally did. It was very nice to meet so many new people. You can share experiences with each other and collaborate. In addition, it was also very pleasant.’’

During the Venture Capital Essentials training you will go through the entire VC investment process. The training consists of eleven modules. In these modules, together with experts from national and international VC funds, you will delve deeper into the topics that are discussed during the investment process. The training offers room for interaction and, if possible, we focus on practical examples as much as possible. The training also offers sufficient opportunities to meet colleagues in an informal manner who, just like you, work within the Venture Capital sector.
