Introduction to Venture Capital with Waterman Ventures

Friday, May 29th, 2:00 PM EST

Hosted by Ludwig Schulze ‘96, Managing Partner Waterman Ventures
Moderated by Peter MacEwan, General Manager

In these unusual times, we thought a webinar would be a great way to share more about Waterman Ventures and what we do. Join me for a one-hour webinar to learn more about Waterman Ventures and the benefits of investing in the future with venture capital.

During the hour we’ll cover the following topics:

  • Why venture capital may (or may not) be an appropriate part of your investment portfolio
  • How venture capital investments have done in the past and are largely uncorrelated from the public markets
  • How Waterman Ventures invests as part of the Alumni Ventures Group, the 3rd most active venture capital group in the US
  • A few of the portfolio companies we have invested in, including some we highlight in our series “Venture Versus the Virus”
  • Basics of the investment process including our $50K minimum and how to invest from retirement accounts
  • Open Q&A
