Top-class programs for aspiring and practising professionals in venture capital

Why does Newton exist?

Our mission is to level the playing field for people from typically overlooked backgrounds – ensuring that the next generation of venture investors represent the world we live in.


Seven of the ten world’s largest companies were catalysed by venture capital, creating trillions in market value and millions of jobs worldwide. 


Yet the venture capital ecosystem is still not representative of the world we live in and the population it serves.
