Together with Nic Brisbourne of The Equity Kicker / DFJ Esprit, I am writing a series of 50 questions you should ask when raising venture capital. We expect the series to run for a year, after which we will collate the answers into a book. We view this as a collaboration, so please comment to help make this series even more useful. This is post #7 in the series.


Few entrepreneurs take the time to realise that VCs are often under the same pressure as startups: they have to find capital, satisfy their investors and keep up with a changing market.

In this week’s 50 questions post, Nic Brisbourne explains what Limited Partners, the source of funds for many venture capital firms, look for before they will invest in a VC team.

Read the full answer at The Equity Kicker.
