Setting up and raising a fund is a complex process
Raising a first time fund is one of the most difficult things to do. And it is because it is a highly regulated industry, much of this information is not easily accessible or very expensive to get, and it is a type of craft that relies on strong pre-existing networks and a relevant track record that not everyone has.
We teach you the tools to navigate through the Depth of Funds
We believe that with the right tools, guidance and network many more people in the investment ecosystem can successfully become fund managers and support many more promising companies with their capital, skills and unique contribution.

The VC Challenge program combines academia and real VC and LP experience to share with you the industry insights on topics such as how to raise a first fund, what LPs are looking for and how to attract them to your fund, and how to win access to the best deals. The VC Challenge works with Stanford University professors, local and Nordic early stage VCs and both public and private LPs and Family Offices that are active investors in Nordic emerging funds.
