When the world was locked down due to the Covid-19 crisis, VCs and seasoned founders did a great job with podcasts and zoom calls to help founders in distress. Yet one category was a bit ignored - associates and analysts in VC firms who are the budding VCs of tomorrow. We had been wanting to do this program for a while and the first Covid lockdown in 2020 was perfect timing to initiate these lectures. Ritesh of Stellaris and Prayank of Accel were our 'early backers', co-founders in fact, in this initiative.

Anti-Dilution is a bi-annual learning program for budding VC associates and analysts. The first lecture series was conducted in April 2020 with the second series in December 2020 and third in July 2021. Over 80+ future Midas Touch listers joined us live for the series and many followed the lectures offline. We are now opening up some of the videos for public consumption :)

If you want to join Anti-Dilution, just drop a mail to [email protected]. We run a packed house but will be happy to consider new entrants. You can also watch the sessions here.
