Venture Capitalists’ (VCs’) visits

Filed under: Interesting — Rohit Aggarwal @ 10:44 pm

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.

  2. Dr Aggarwal, I attended the lecture you put on today, I actually believe you sat in front of me. It was a great lecture and I really enjoyed the opportunity to be able to meet people who are hands on in the VC/Tech Statup world, especially since we are Utah which does not have the best exposure. I have actually been to San Fran a few times on attempted financing rounds and recently partook in If you could email me when you have a moment I would love to get together with you (depending on your schedule of course)and pick your brain. I was very excited to learn from Mr Hassett that we had someone very familiar with the startup world in our department since its my passion/obsession.
