Rancho Compasión, an animal sanctuary in beautiful Nicasio, California

Just 35 min north of SF, buses and parking space provided.


The invite-only Emerging Venture Capitalists Association Summit is the largest annual gathering of a combined 350+ pre-partner VCs and LPs from the top sovereign wealth funds, endowments, pension funds, family offices, and fund of funds.

The event will be centered around networking and building strong connections with your peers - interspersed with a handful of panels and firesides covering top-of-mind topics for the next generation of the VC industry’s investors and allocators.

This will be like no other VC or tech summit you've attended, in part due to the world-class views, wine tastings, dining among the grapevines, and meeting the sanctuary's animal residents. More details are in the FAQ section below.

Located at the Beautiful Rancho Compasión in Nicasio CA.

Just 35 minutes north of San Francisco

Founded by Miyoko and Michael Schinner, Rancho Compasión provides a home to many previously neglected animals.

The sanctuary is nestled in the bucolic town of Nicasio, California, surrounded by beautiful redwood trees, bountiful wildlife, and a rich farming culture.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served on site, as well as wine and beverages.  

Buses will be provided to transport attendees from the Presidio in San Francisco to and from the sanctuary. We’ll also have limited parking available if you’d prefer to drive.

About EVCA

Our Story

The Emerging Venture Capitalists Association (EVCA) is a nonprofit and the largest global community of VCs, composed of 1350+ members across 560+ venture firms, and led by a team of 80+ VCs. Membership is highly curated; only approximately one third of applicants who meet our criteria are accepted.

Since our founding in 2017, the EVCA has launched 30+ industry and geo-specific communities who cumulatively, host over 50 events a year.

Our membership size and authority within the venture industry has rapidly grown due to initiatives such as the EVC List, a cohort of the 50 top rising stars in venture. The list - as decided by a qualitative and quantitative review, and [by] a judges’ panel of prominent investors — was widely mentioned across the VC ecosystem. It was celebrated by the finalists’ firms, colleagues, list judges, portfolio companies, and the finalists themselves. Dozens of the finalist’s investment theses were also published thanks to Terra Nova.

Increasingly, the WSJ has relied on the EVCA as an authoritative source on the venture industry, due to the growing strength and reach of our network. EVCA was featured in the WSJ twice in the past few weeks, citing our insights on how young VCs are navigating the difficult market and also on VC compensation trends.

If you’re at the pre-partner or junior partner level (i.e. have been a partner for 3 years or less) and would like to join, please complete this form.
