What Investors are saying

Hear QAI program reviews straight from past Cohort members.

Brian Belley

Investor, VP @ KingsCrowd

As a seasoned angel and crowdfund investor, I had always taken my startup investing seriously, but lacked any formal avenues for recognizing my efforts and taking my investing knowledge to the next level. The QAI program is more than just a certification and program of study; it connects you with some of the brightest minds in the space of startup investing and has something to offer everyone - whether you are just starting out or an experienced investor.

Richard Millunchick

Startup Coach & Advisor

The QAI program thoughtfully prepares the angel investor with the tools to remove the emotion from a potential investment opportunity. Understanding the risks and rewards in any potential startup is beneficial for both the novice and seasoned angel investor.

Satya Moolani

Founder & Investor

QAI was the perfect stepping stone for me to learn about the VC landscape. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit, and QAI really helped explain the financial side of growth, fundraising, and VC. 10/10 would recommend!

Katie Hestor

Investor @ Launch NY

QAI helped sharpen my knowledge of startup investing by covering the startup world comprehensively, from regulations and fundamentals to deal analysis and deal arrangement. I could even put my learning to work via the Fantasy Startup investing simulation!

Matt Panucci

Startup Investor & Advisor

QAI is for anyone who is serious about enhancing their financial sophistication, understanding private markets, and building a toolkit for disciplined venture investing.

Landon Young

Pre-Seed VC @ Elevate Ventures

I’ve been investing in pre-seed startups for over 10 years but still walked away with valuable learnings. The investment landscape is constantly changing and there’s no better time to up your game. Consider QAI as the next step in your journey.

Matt Tamburro

Corporate VC @ M&T Bank

This program helped organize my thinking around a set framework for evaluating startup companies. Early-stage investing is very much an art not a science but investors can benefit from adding a significant amount of structure to their process. QAI helps with exactly that. You can gather a broad foundation of the venture capital investing landscape while learning practical skills like valuation, waterfall analysis, cap table calculations, and financial analysis.

Jerry Brown

Startup Investor @ IU Angels

Initially, I was inclined not to enroll because of my results on the assessment exam. I am so happy that I changed my mind! QAI provided me with a framework to understand the intricacies of startup investing. The tools I learned will be used for years to come.
