  • Fiduciary Duties an​d Conflicts of Interests in Silicon Valley
  • Secondary Liquidity for Founders and Employees
  • Crisis Planning and Management for VC Firms
  • IPOs, Governance Structures and the Rising Power of the Founders
  • Building a Better Board

Please note that this specialized Directors’ College event will be a one-day session limited to venture capitalists, CEO/Founders, and board members of venture-backed companies. Admission to VCDC is open only to these qualified participants as determined by the program co-directors.
