Venture Capital Bootcamp 2009

This year during internet week in New York there was a “Venture Capital Bootcamp” event. Venture capitalists from DFJ Gotham Ventures and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati came to Columbia University and participated.

It was a great event, very informative and the presenters took an interesting approach to telling everyone about how VCs think and work.
