I have been working in Venture Capital the past couple of months and I wanted to continue sharing takeaways I have gotten from my internship!
Check out a previous post for part 1 ~ here are some more thoughts 🙂
- Know Where You Stand ~ A lot of companies reach out to VCs who are completely out of their cycle. What I mean by that is that seed stage funds cannot put together the money to invest in late stage and vice versa. So you should not waste the effort trying to convince a VC to do something they can’t. But you can start the conversations early and maintain a relationship with them for when you are ready!
- Do Your Research ~ As a company it is just as important to do your research on the VC fund as the VC fund finds it important to do research on you. You should check on their portfolio companies and see how they like their investors as partners. It is just as important that you find a fit as they do.
Thanks for the read!
