NextGen Newsletter - March 2021
NextGen is a 20+ year old community supporting each new generation of venture capital talent.
Happy March folks! Thank you to all the folks who expressed interest in joining the NextGen board. We’re really excited to add some fresh faces to the board, and we’ll be reaching out in the next week to those that sent us a note.
So far, this month has been packed with big moves for a number of young investors. We’re so thrilled to see more of our peers become new principals and partners. Congrats to all!
The first YC Demo Day of 2021 is around the corner and with it will come spring. This year is flying by super fast! We hope everyone has an opportunity to pause and take a breather soon. Until then, here are our monthly highlights.
