Sept. 12, 2019. Brian Jacobs, founder of Moai Capital and Emergence Capital, announced that he has been named Lecturer in Management by Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and will be co-teaching a class on angel and venture capital financing during the Autumn Quarter. He will join Professor Ilya Strebulaev to teach F385 Angel and Venture Capital Fundraising for Entrepreneurs and Investors.
Ilya Strebulaev is the David S. Lobel Professor of Private Equity and Professor of Finance at Stanford Graduate School of Business, Stanford University, and the director of the Stanford GSB Venture Capital Initiative. He is a leading academic researcher in venture and angel capital, innovation financing, corporate innovation and financial decision-making. His work has been widely published in leading academic journals, and featured in a variety of business media, including New York Times and Wall Street Journal. Some of his well-known research includes a study analyzing the economic valuation of “unicorns” and another illuminating VC decision-making and bias in the largest ever survey of VCs. “About half of the students in F385 hope to start or join a startup when they graduate and the other half wants to prepare for a career in venture capital,” Strebulaev explained. “Brian’s real-world experience as a venture capital and angel investor will add another dimension of the learning experience for our MBA students.”
Jacobs commented “Stanford Graduate School of Business has a long and deep connection to the venture capital industry in Silicon Valley. I am looking forward to sharing my experience with this group of future business leaders.”
