Description

Any young career specialists who want to work in Venture Capital find it hard to understand how to break into this industry. One of the things that help a lot is having a prior VC experience. In this Build Project, you will wear the hat of a Venture Capital Analyst and prepare an investment memo for a potential gaming startup to perform financial, operational, and market due diligence. Under the supervision of an experienced Build Fellow, you will learn how a potential gaming startup investment opportunity will be analyzed and discussed to ultimately decide whether or not to invest. You will become familiar with financial modeling, operational modeling and various research methodologies that will aid you in your conclusion. All this will happen in an environment that simulates the operations of a real investment committee in a venture capital firm.
