MS&E 476: Entrepreneurship through the Lens of Venture Capital
Ernestine Fu is an angel investor in Silicon Valley, partner at venture capital firm Alsop Louie Partners, and instructor at Stanford University. Michael Carter is an entrepreneur and technologist who designed the initial WebSocket protocol for HTML5.
In this talk, Ernestine and Michael discuss the foundations of venture capital from the perspective of an investor and entrepreneur, respectively: getting into venture capital, dynamics of negotiating a financing round, finding investment opportunities, term sheet basics, portfolio management, venture firm governance, and GP/LP dynamics.
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.
