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:

<50M: microfund
<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.

Kinda confused when calculating IRR/MoM in LBO, especially when it comes to net debt.

Why would you having to pay off your own debt when exiting? Why won’t the buyer be on the hook for refinancing
