Do research to see which funds are more operationally and/or consultant friendly first (look at their team bio or page to see) and narrow down discussions and focus there

Lots of difference. Look at firms that hire consultants vs former senior executives (which I assume you don’t qualify for)

Hi All,

I am not physically at this location & I’m not sure if this is happening on the clock or not. All employees have signed confidentiality agreements. In our line of work it is important that we do not disclose private company information due to competitors and liabilities. Any recommendations on how to handle this?

Comp question for VC. My firm is fundraising a third fund. I’m not expecting my full bonus this year; I joined in April. At bonus time, I’m thinking about asking my partner if he would match my contribution to the new fund if I dedicated my whole bonus $ to it? So ex. if my bonus is $20k, I take none of it in cash, put $ in the fund, and ideally firm matches another $20k. My reasoning: it’s a deferred comp rather than cash, and I want to show I’m dedicated and plan to stick around. Am I crazy?

Am I the only one who has barely any work to do? I finish my work in a matter of a few hours, and spend my days bored out of my mind.

I fear that they want to fire me or that they’re unhappy with my work, but at every quarterly review, I have nothing but praise with minor comments. I realise I’m lucky, but can’t help but feel guilty, like a fraud and bored.

What do you think cutoffs for fund size categories in VC are? Obviously it’s much smaller asset class than PE, but would something like this make sense:

<100M: Seed Fund
<500M: Early Stage (A&B) “Midcap”
<2B: Growth (C+) “Late Stage”
2B+: “Megafund”

Funds in larger categories can do smaller deals, but larger check sizes make more sense for them.
