Parker Thompson is a partner at AngelList, where he and his team invest in several hundred startups a year. In this talk, Parker discusses the advantages of AngelList, such as investing as a syndicate and raising “smart money.”
Course Description: We often discuss how technology is reinvented and disrupted, but there is also a good amount of change occurring within the venture capital industry. Within the past several decades there have been new entrants, from incubators to angels to different models of venture capital.
The course explores changes in the venture capital industry: from the rise of Sand Hill Road and investing in the dot-com bubble, to incubators and accelerators, equity crowdfunding platform, and different models of venture capital today.
