Program Timing & Organization
The program will include a wide variety of virtual experiences over the course of 2 weeks. The highly selective small cohort allows for up close and personal interactions with the high stakes players in the Silicon Valley ecosystem via remote platforms.
You will be scheduled for sessions for 4-5 hours per day, which will occur between noon and 8pm EST and will be different each day. Additionally you will meet with your team, prepare for sessions and drop in for social visits when not "scheduled." In general you should think of the 12 days of LSV from January 4-15 as your full time gig. As this is a course, all work is mandatory and timed sessions cannot be adjusted for individual personal schedules.
