Pascal Kalbermatten, Co-Founder Oakura Ventures:

“As co-founder of a Swiss blockchain-powered venture investment firm, I profited from the vast experience of the instructors around advanced cap-table dynamics. I believe the VC Academy can be very helpful for entrepreneurs and aspiring investors alike as you dive deeply into both legal and financial processes of VC deals, and gain a thorough understanding of best practices applied in Silicon Valley.”
