Whitney Tilson’s latest webinar announcements from an email entitled:Webinars July 23-Aug. 4; links to slides and videos for webinars on How to Raise $1 Billion (or not) and Lessons from 15 Years of Short Selling; Want to Run a High-Flying Hedge Fund? Don’t Be a Cheapskate

To our readers  Pease use “VW10” for a discount!

In less than four weeks, from July 23-August 1, we are going to teach via live webinar our Lessons from the Trenches investing bootcamp, followed by our seminar on How to Launch and Build an Investment Fund from August 2-4.


Rather than the full days we teach when we’re doing it in person, we’re breaking the two programs into 12 modules – 9 for the bootcamp and 3 for the seminar – that we will teach in 2½-hour sessions that will take place live every day from 7:00-9:30am NY time (no class Sunday, July 29).


The webinar offers big advantages for participants:


  • No need to take time off of work: The webinar is only 2½ hours/day and takes place before work hours for those in the U.S., Canada & Latin America, and after work hours for most of Asia (India, China, Singapore, Australia). (Europeans will need to carve out time in the middle of the day.)


  • No need to travel: Anyone, anywhere in the world, can take the webinar using a smartphone, tablet or computer


  • More affordable: Participants won’t incur any travel or hotels costs and, because we don’t have to pay for renting a room, providing meals, etc., we’re pricing the webinar at less than half of our normal tuition, with an especially big discount for early registrants


You can register at: www.cvent.com/d/dgqdlz/4W. Don’t delay as the tuition goes up soon!
