MUMBAI: Online education platform UpGrad led by Ronnie Screwvala and Mayank Kumar and LetsVenture have designed a four to six weeks Angel Investment Programme of a mixture of interactive content and lectures from the world’s leading Angel Investors as well as high-end offline meet-ups for networking opportunities.

The aim is to give individuals hoping to become investors an unmatched access to the startup ecosystem of the country.

Due to the significant growth of investment opportunities in the Indian Startup ecosystem, LetsVenture expects more than 4,000 new Angel Investors to join their investment network over the next year. The joint online programme between UpGrad and LetsVenture aims to reach over 2,500 individuals over the next two years.

“Our programme is designed to satisfy the increasing demands of individuals to be educated in the area of Angel Investing, driven by the strong growth in the entrepreneurial ecosystem in India and great developments in the funding landscape. LetsVenture has had huge impact on the positive development in the country and we are extremely excited to partner up with them to educate the next set of investors”, said UpGrad co founder Ronnie Screwvala.

“Ever since we started LetsVenture, we have seen a significant demand of new Angel Investors to get trained and educated in some of the key areas of Angel Investing. We have done smaller training workshops throughout the years, but we want to make this available to the many more individuals who want to step into this exciting field of investments. We want to make angel investing more accessible to investors living outside of Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore. That is why we have partnered with UpGrad to create a first-class programme for the next generation of Angel Investors”, said LetsVenture Co founder and CEO Shanti Mohan.

“There is keen and strongly growing interest in investing in early stage start-ups. UpGrad & LetsVenture are strongly aligned in their vision to further strengthen and nurture India’s most promising ecosystem of startups and investors and build a global hub of thought-leadership in the area”, said UpGrad Co-founder and MD Mayank Kumar.

The programme slated to commence in the second quarter of 2016 in India will also be launched in select international markets to give international investors access to the entrepreneurial ecosystem in India and in the respective country.
