Investor VCs and Operator VCs
A VC : Venture Capital and Technology
MAY 1, 2017
The Venture Capital business is full of great firms that were founded by entrepreneurs/operators who became investors mid/late career. You build domain expertise, operating experience, and relationships/networks that help you win deals and help entrepreneurs by doing it this way. And it is not how most of my partners at USV did it. First on my list is “avoiding the temptation to operate.” Many of the best strategic minds I know aren’t operators.
