With 2,400+ investments in our portfolio, 500 Startups has seen more deals than just about anyone. Together with the Stanford Center for Professional Development (SCPD), 500 built VC Unlocked: Silicon Valley Online to share that knowledge and give angels and VCs the confidence they need to make better investments. VC Unlocked: Silicon Valley Online will take place from October 5-16, 2020, and applications are now open.
The VC Unlocked program uses a project-based learning approach in which participants continually refine their investment theses with the help of 500 partners and Stanford University faculty. This program is led by Stanford University faculty Michael Lepech, Mike Lyons, Pedram Mokrian, and Trevor Loy, and 500 Startups’ CEO & Founding Partner, Christine Tsai, and Managing partner, Bedy Yang.
