The venture landscape is complex and rapidly evolving, however there is a gap in the existing academic landscape. We discuss the reasons for this gap and how junior associates and early-stage investors can learn to make sound investment decisions.

Atomico is a European venture capital firm headquartered in London, with offices in Paris, Beijing, São Paulo, Stockholm, and Tokyo. Its founder and CEO is Niklas Zennström, a serial entrepreneur who co-founded Skype and Kazaa. QVentures is a network of family offices, UHNWIs, and successful entrepreneurs investing in venture capital. Their experienced team of highly motivated professionals are committed to delivering quality and excellence.

QVentures, in partnership with London Business School, is addressing the gap in CPD in the venture industry by launching a first of its kind four-day professional development programme on 23 November, aimed at venture capital investment professionals, family offices (partners / investment managers) and investors in early-stage companies. Our Global Head of Withers tech, James Shaw will be speaking on key VC deal terms.
