About this event

Venture firms have invested in wave after wave of technology, yet have been notoriously slow to adopt those same tools. Today, only 1% of venture firms have internal data-driven initiatives. But the AI wave is sweeping up Venture Capital as surely as other industries. Venture funds are starting to apply AI tools to sourcing deals, sifting through pitch decks, and evaluating risk. Gartner predicts that by 2025, 75% of venture decisions will be influenced by AI analytics rather than investor instinct. Certainly, AI holds the promise of more efficient venture fund operation, better decisions, and even more equitable selection of companies and founders. It also threatens to up-end private investing in hard to predict ways.

Join the Women in Venture Peer Group for what we're sure will be a lively conversation about how we as fund managers are starting to leverage more data and AI, and where that's likely to take the industry.

Chatham House Rule: What is said in this group, stays in this group. Sessions are not recorded and will not be part of the library.

What to expect: -A topical theme for each meeting with guided questions -We may invite some expert guests selectively -No slides/decks or AV and a loosely structured dialogue

Insightful conversations for topics such as: -Gaining access and influence to the Investment Committee -How AI is impacting decision making in venture -Delivering value to PortCo's through post-investment involvement -Cap Tables - reading between the lines -Portfolio auditing and re-balancing -How Investment Committees operate -Impact of high-interest rates on venture practices and outcomes -Sifting through the deal flow without invoking biases that diminish diversity

Date and time: 1 hour meeting on the third Friday of every other month at 9am PT/ 12pm ET

Peer Group Host: Gaby Aneas

Peer Group Experts: Lilia Sherman and Shauna Turner

Each live session goes for one hour, no preparation is needed, just show up as you are. We look forward to seeing you there!

Learning Circles

A Learning Circle is an opportunity to connect with a small group of other Athena members in a focused yet casual setting, creating accountability around targeted learning to assist you in achieving your goals. Over the course of 6 sessions, club members will meet every 2 weeks to participate in an organic, peer-led discussion of the session's "chapters" consisting of 1-2 Athena salons which are to be reviewed on your own prior to the group session. When joining, members are committing to completing all 6 sessions.
