Not in GE but at a series a/b but I’d imagine similar to how we source

1. Relationships with earlier stage funds
2. Partner network
3. Outbound (lower level staff at conferences and you name it trying to meet companies)
4. Inbound leads

Have better partners 😆

Usually there’s a banker by the time it gets to GE and it’ll work similar to a buyout

2 and 3 is a big source. For high flying companies, everyone knows which ones are hot.
