Registration Information

Please note: The health and safety of our community and members is the top priority for both Stanford University and the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA), and rapidly evolving events surrounding COVID-19 (also called novel coronavirus) have raised concerns around large-scale gatherings. In compliance with guidance released yesterday by Stanford, and in accordance with health guidance from the CDC, WHO, and other health authorities as well as decisions implemented by many large corporations such as Facebook, Microsoft and Google regarding their events, we have made the difficult decision to reschedule the Stanford•NVCA Venture Capital Symposium.  We will follow up with details about the rescheduled event as soon as they are available.

We realize that this news may bring mixed reactions, and we are also deeply disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to welcome you to campus next week for what was gearing up to be a spectacular event. We are incredibly grateful for the hard work of the Stanford Law School Programs team and the staff at NVCA who have worked tirelessly to plan and organize this event. We thank the members of the Symposium Steering Committee, sponsors Deloitte and Morgan Stanley, and anchor VCs Andreessen Horowitz and Benchmark for their support and leadership on this program. We are also grateful to all of you who rearranged your schedules to join us as speakers and participants – we hope to have the opportunity to reengage on the critical topics we had planned to discuss at a future date

We will be in touch soon with information about the rescheduled event, and we appreciate your patience and understanding in the meantime. If you have questions, please email
