Venture capital goes to school
PE Hub Network, November 14, 2017 – What does a venture capital school have to teach Janet Bannister, general partner at Real Ventures, a former eBay executive, and founder of popular internet brand Kijiji? Plenty, Bannister tells PE Hub Canada. Last week, Bannister joined other investment pros in Vancouver at GP Academy, a program BDC Capital developed in consultation with Silicon Valley VC educator Kauffman Fellows. Launched in May, it provides a boot-camp-style learning environment that aims to buff up investors’ skills.
