What investors are saying 🗣

🎙 Gale Wilkinson, Founder of VITALIZE Venture Capital, on how to raise a venture capital fund.

“At a high level, LPs are looking for at least a 3X net return on their capital invested. This corresponds to a VC performing in the top quartile. Some LPs will tell you that early-stage funds should at least return 5X net, corresponding to the top decile.

More specifically, LPs tend to look at a GP’s strategy, team, deal flow network, and ability to outperform when they make their go / no go decision on a fund.”

🎙 Seema Amble, Partner at Andreessen Horowitz, on how to break into VC.

“The main piece of advice is to start doing the job before you get it – have a point of view on what companies you would invest in and why (or if you have the means, angel invest). Share your theses actively with firms and don’t send emails just asking for a general coffee catch-up. People are more likely to engage if they know you have something substantive to talk about!”

Seema Amble, Partner at Andreesen Horowitz

🎙 Olivia O’Sullivan, Partner at Forum Ventures, on how managers can execute a platform strategy to attract and win allocation in deals.

“For Platform Managers, devising a strategy for 2024 must involve a nuanced understanding of the current landscape and the implications for funds. Before you get to setting the strategy, it’s important understand what success looks like.”
