 The purpose of this series of virtual live masterclasses, comprising of five, 90-minute webinars, is to demystify this semi-esoteric vehicle.


SPACSs are accepted  as an important funding and acquisition tool by leading investment banks and private equity funds like Goldman Sachs, TPG, KKR, Khosla Ventures, Sir Richard Branson and other leading financiers.

-  companies to raise substantial funds for scaling their business


This practical course is presented from four vantage points:


Firstly, from the point of view of SPAC sponsors ;


Secondly, from the standpoint of private equity funds, venture capital funds;


Thirdly, from the perspective of  startups and other companies who need funding and seek a listed status; and


Finally, retail and PIPE investors.

  • Introduction to SPACs & the Role of Sponsors
