Around this time last year, I posted on my diploma from WIPO`s (World Intellectual Property Organization) General Intellectual Property Course and some people approached me for details about the course.

The first part of the course provides an overview of the venture capital industry in general and the financial motivations and goals that shape the typical venture capital fund in its approach to an early-stage investment.
The course will then move on to the wide range of business, legal, tax, and accounting issues typically required to be addressed by the risk-funded technology company. These issues will be examined for the entire technology start-up lifecycle, from the organizational phase to the seed and venture capital funding cycles, with some final discussions on the process and issues related to accessing public equity markets through an IPO. Related issues are also examined, including firm capitalization structures, traditional employee participation incentives, and the terms of a typical venture capital investment. The course will include case studies from Silicon Valley technology companies to illustrate the legal and business principles discussed. The course will also feature a number of guest speakers to share their experiences from a real-world perspective, including venture capitalists from Silicon Valley-based venture capital funds, executives from existing venture-backed technology companies, lawyers from local law firms focused on the tech space, etc. Very good overview of the legal tech sector and above all a good mix of general start-up lessons as well as field-specific overviews.

The lockdown may be over (for the most part) now, but learning about different areas of law and developing useful skills is certainly still in fashion, especially when it comes to rapidly developing fields like fintech law. So I expanded the list, added 30 new courses, and divided them into categories.
You can find fintech courses in the first category – technology law. However, be sure to go through the entire list – you`re sure to find something you want to learn! Very good course, but I was expecting more detailed information on the technological side of things. Instead, the course seems to focus on entrepreneurship.
