I am very excited that I was able to get the following VCs as guest speakers:
Feb 12, Thursday – Wayne Cantwell
March 4, Wednesday- Ashmeet Sidana
March 31, Tuesday- David Hornik
April 15, Wednesday- Anurag Chandra
April 29, Wednesday- Tim Draper
I have scheduled all the talks between 4.45-5.45PM as there are no classes at this time. I initially approached these VCs for guest lectures in my MBA class. Realizing that other students would also be interested, I have organized these talks at the school level.
These VCs fund IT related ventures and it would be interesting to know their perspectives on emerging technologies. I believe it is a great opportunity for students to bridge the gap between class room teaching and the real world of private equity financing.
