    Session Brief - 
    There has been a lot of Media attention on Venture Capital (VC) and its increasing role in capturing ROI (Return on Investment) in the Global economy. This webinar will cover opportunities the VC phenomenon has thrown up for Finance professionals. It will explain how a Finance professional can capture the growing craze for investing in the private-unlisted investment economy. In the current scenario that there are Angel Investors from all walks of life, we will cover how a Finance Professional can achieve his or her aims.

    Key Takeaways: With enhanced exposure to the benefits of unlocking value on the Balance sheet side, each wannabe-Founder begins his journey today by wanting to become a Unicorn or even a Decacorn. Finance professionals with a hardcore understanding of Finance are needed not only for VC as an industry but also in Startups who need Financial Engineering skills to adapt to this environment and create Shareholder value.
