VC Lab Cohort 5 admissions are officially open. Our intention is to help the largest group of general partners succeed in changing the world for the better.
Cohort 5 starts in November of 2021, and you can see the schedule here. This timing is designed to help general partners launch their funds by Q2 of 2022.
There are a number of admissions changes in Cohort 5:
- Applications are processed on a first come, first served basis in response to the high number of applicants in previous Cohorts.
- The application form now asks for your one sentence investment Thesis, which you can read about here.
- The application form also asks about the size of your dealflow and fundraising networks.
- Greater weighting is being placed on the professionalism of the two-minute application video.
