50 questions: Will a VC bring in a pro CEO once the round is closed?

By on November 18, 2011

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 #40 in the series.


VCs don’t plan to bring in a new CEO when they invest in a business, but over time circumstances may arise that make it the best course of action. In the latest 50 questions post, Nic explains when, why and how investors introduce new CEOs to the teams with whom they work. Read more over at the Equity Kicker, Will a VC Bring in a Pro CEO Once the Round is Closed?
