Alumni about the Course
  • I am very glad that I got on the course and met wonderful people. For me, this is a new, very important stage in my life. I really enjoy studying again. I am in search of my Life's Work, and it seems that I have found it. It's super significant. Exit from the corridor of thinking - to a new universe. You need to be able to reboot, shed the ashes of old patterns and old success. It's a very cool feeling to start climbing.

  • The course lifts the veil over the world of venture investments - the world is tough, if not cruel. Without this knowledge, you run the risk of being O'Henry's heroes - Jeff Peters and Andy Tucker - who made money in the provinces and - lost everything in New York. A must for everyone who analyzes the possibility of venture investments or creates a startup.

  • The course definitely exceeded my expectations. I went to him to structure my practical experience and get an academic broad view of venture capital. But I was surprised to find that the course has an interesting game dynamics that awakens a gambling desire to absorb new material (and there is a lot of it) and work in groups on cases. It is also very valuable for me personally that the course reflects the material of many studies of the venture capital market and decades of statistics collected, I really lacked this for a complete picture.

  • In my 30 years in the IT industry, I have been actively involved in the creation of several successful IT companies. And each time the creation of the company is not like one another. And so life gave me the opportunity to take part in the First Group of the new course, which is conducted by Stanford University professor Ilya Strebulaev and Fort Ross Foundation managing partner Viktor Orlovsky. And I immediately decided to take part in it. And in the three weeks that have passed since the beginning of the training, this course has already paid off for me, from my point of view, because I got communication with other startups, communication with people who, like me, take an active position in investing. And, most importantly, understandable, clear and very logical material that I received!!! It seems to me that this is a unique education of people, and I am very pleased to be one of the first and participate in its creation.

  • When Professor Strebulaev, one of the world's most sought-after speakers on this topic, shared with me the news about the creation of the NEIC club and a special course on venture capital investments, I never doubted for a minute that I wanted to take this training. Despite the high expectations that existed at the start, the creators of the course managed to surpass them. The quantity and quality of educational content, lecturers and experts speaking in live sessions make the NEIC course unique. This is the very case when we have before us not only the result of painstaking work, but also the product of the creative interaction of enthusiastic and talented people.
