Future VC is a program that looks to increase diversity within the venture capital industry. Northstar Director Ian Richards and Investment Manager Khadija Ashfaq presented a Masterclass on 'Ecosystems across the UK and world'.
Henry Purchase who was in the audience and involved in Future VC for two months was inspired to follow up the Masterclass with more detailed conversations with Ian and Khadija. Henry said, "This talk was probably one of my favourite masterclasses during the Future VC program. In the conversations, we covered student investment funds, some of Northstars' portfolio companies, the northeast ecosystem, three recommendations for young people interested in working at Northstar and three tips for young entrepreneurs looking to start a business."
