Any VCs out there have advice on how to build up deal flow? Different channels, tips you’ve learned from your own experience, or events I should know about. Firm is younger but the partners have good connections and reputation, just want to find new ways to increase deal flow quality and quantity. Thanks in advance.

I’m working through this same thing at my VC firm. Practitioner-led shop where it seems like the partners already have all the connections. But I’ve done a few specific things that I can share. Happy to hop on a call and compare notes with you.

Going on a production in LA last minute, will be my first in person work thing in two years. So excited to be shooting again then realized 90% of my cute work production/LA weather work clothes don’t fit anymore post covid weight gain. Just ugh 😓 I wish it didn’t bother me as much as it does but won’t lie it definitely killed some of my excitement today. I’ve seen some similar posts about woman on here dreading buying new wardrobes to go back to the office and I see you!

Pregnant with our first, we were so excited, we told my in-laws (incl my BIL and SIL) when we were 7 weeks. Found out two months later they decided to start trying and got prego too. So we’re due about 5 weeks apart. My MIL has a huge family that always throws baby showers. My MIL told them not to throw either me or my SIL a shower because we’re due so close to each other, don’t like each other, and she doesn’t want people to have to go to two showers. My mom died when I was little…

I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?
