NextGen Newsletter - November 2021
NextGen is a 20+ year old community supporting each new generation of venture capital talent.
Okay seriously - when did it become November? Thanksgiving is next week and the holidays are around the corner?! Crazy.
I’ll get to the point here - there are two awesome updates for y’all this month.
First - we are hosting our annual NextGen Secret Santa gift exchange! Register below and we'll match you up with another junior investor in the community. You'll have the rest of the year to learn more about them and send a gift before the end of the holidays. All those who register will be invited to a virtual Secret Santa Social from 5:30 - 6:30 PM PT on Tuesday, December 7. If you have any questions, please send a note to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Register here.
Second - look for a separate email invitation with details on our NextGen Holiday Party! You won’t want to miss out on this annual tradition, it’s a fantastic opportunity to bring the entire junior investor community together and never fails to be an *epic* time. More to come soon!
Read on for investor promotion news, thought provoking content, and cool job opportunities. Our community has so much to be grateful for this season - hope y’all have a great Thanksgiving next week!
