This evening the New York Venture Community held a “Venture Capital Bootcamp” in NYC. Venture capitalists from DFJ Gotham Ventures and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati participated in the event.
Check out the video below from the event which covered topics including: an overview of the VC industry,
the venture capital fundraising process, company formation types (LLC, corporations, etc.), term sheets, and what to do after investment. There’s also a discussion about whether VC funding is right for you and your business.
The video runs just over three hours and you can listen to the audio while working.

Here's what I love about the Web: people sharing their knowledge base for free to help others. A hundred years ago, you would never have done this. If you wanted my knowledge, you paid me. Today we are so willing to share our gifts and talents for free (or close to free). It's awesome.
Today I learned about one such knowledge sharing tool. It's a new blog by Mark Peter Davis of DFJ Gotham Ventures called, "Get Venture." Basically it provides information on the entire VC process from initial contact through check signing. And the information is very detailed. If you plan to seek funding (and even if you don't) it's a must read. You only have one chance with a VC, why not be as close to perfect as you can by using the tools that are available?
