Don't Just take our word for it
Hear from our fellows
"Dream VC took me from zero to one hundred in four months. The program structure assumes no prior knowledge, and takes you from the origins to VC to advanced topics like fund formation. Before joining, I was getting no responses from the VC firms I applied to. Because of Dream VC, I ended up getting multiple interviews while I was still in the program and directly joined Oui Capital as an analyst upon program completion."
