Wasabi Ventures created the Wasabi Ventures Academy to give individuals a first-hand experience in the startup and venture capital world. The Wasabi Ventures Academy is an entrepreneur's guide through the startup universe. Focused around the individual, this revolutionary program leverages the vast network at Wasabi Ventures, as well as fundamental lessons that build successful individuals and startups. The Academy is built around a series of courses; each course offers an incredible wealth of knowledge and is supported by an immense library of resources. The cornerstone of the academy is Startup 101, a self-serve program in which students get an overview of the startup world and learn first-hand from successful entrepreneurs and the founders of Wasabi Ventures. This course is followed by more intensive courses that are offered through a selective admissions process. Successful students may be chosen to become Entrepreneurs-in-Residence, Wasabi Ventures analysts, or WV Portfolio partners, among other roles.
