    The session begins with an overview of the market before exploring how a Venture Capital fund works and how this impacts the structure of the investments made.

      • What is a Virtual Classroom
      • Virtual Classroom training is a new and highly engaging way of delivering programs remotely with enhanced levels of interactivity compared to conventional webinars. In AMT’s Virtual Classroom participants are encouraged to activate their own webcams and mics throughout the class allowing for real-time engagement, both verbal and non-verbal, with fellow participants and their trainer. Participants can also share their screens to get instant assistance in any technical exercise; just like asking the trainer to walk over and help in the classroom! We have seen a step-change in participant engagement with this new technology. The trainer’s ability to see a selection of their participants’ faces in real-time, and to react to their verbal and non-verbal cues creates a remarkably realistic classroom-like experience. 

      • Prerequisites
      • We recommend delegates have a solid understanding of financial statement analysis (balance sheet, income statement and cash flow) and financial modeling skills.
