Deal Camp is a four-day course focused on the nuts and bolts of deal making for investors who want to improve their ability to define, negotiate, and execute early-stage investments. Participants will work with leading UC Berkeley faculty and 500 Partners to develop strategies to structure deals in order to maximize investment returns.
Program participants will attend the 500 Startups Preview Day in San Francisco on October 18 and then head to UC Berkeley for Deal Camp on October 19-21. Deal Camp will use a project-based learning approach in which participants will take part in a negotiation simulation with real companies which they will have seen pitch at 500 Startups Preview Day.
