SMU Venture Capital Event Aims to Connect Innovators With VC Leaders

Entrepreneurs, angel investors, venture capitalists, and others can register now for VC University LIVE where they can unlock their venture finance skills and build their networks in Dallas and beyond.

Those seeking an inside look at how venture capital works, and to meet with leaders in the VC industry (virtually), can do so soon via the VC University LIVE event, held in conjunction with Southern Methodist University.

The event, set for Nov. 12-14, invites newcomers, entrepreneurs, angel investors, Venture Capitalists, fund managers, attorneys, and others seeking to unlock their venture finance skills and build their networks, locally and within Silicon Valley.

VC University also aims to explore cutting-edge industry issues, and connects people to improve the flow of both talent and investment funds between local businesses and startups and innovators.

SMU is co-presenting the event via the Robert B. Rowling Center for Business Law & Leadership at SMU Dedman School of Law and the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship at the SMU Cox School of Business.

“SMU is excited to build on its long-standing relationship with NVCA in providing outstanding venture finance education to the DFW community by offering VC University LIVE with NVCA and UC Berkeley Law,” said Simon Mak, PhD, Executive Director of the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship.

“We welcome VC University LIVE to SMU and Dallas,” said Eric F. Hinton, Director of the SMU Robert B. Rowling Center for Business Law & Leadership. “The Dallas region is one of the most dynamic business environments in the United States and SMU is central to that growth.”

The program is part of VC University LIVE, which was launched in 2019 by National Venture Capital Association (NVCA), Venture Forward, and Startup@BerkeleyLaw, from the UC Berkeley School of Law.

In 2019, the inaugural VC program served more than 120 individuals at classes at the University of Michigan and Tulane University.
