Cactus Academy

This is a course, not the one you usually take at a university, but one that paves your path to the highly-exclusive VC world.

It’s hands-on, It’s challenging, and It’s moslty about teamwork. We meet every week for a whole semester, meet great speakers, and great people. You’ll get the tools you need to identify investment opportunities and learn to evaluate early-stage companies.

Cactus Team

This is where it really gets good.

The Cactus team is where ambitious plans are made and where dreams become plans (with deadlines). It’s a place to express yourself and a collective vision. We value eager learners who think different and don’t mind putting the effort into what they believe in.
Keeping it spiky, one day at a time.
