Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
So, who does the Venture Capitalist serve?
The VC raises funds from the Limited Partner and invests in startups.
In talking with entrepreneurs, they make clear the VC serves the Limited Partners first.
Many founders talk about how helpful the VC is to their company and personal growth.
Entrepreneurs are important to the VC and vice versa.
The VC needs the business in which to invest, and the entrepreneur needs the funding.
The VC to entrepreneur is more of a partnership than a customer/vendor relationship.
They both share a common goal.
They must work together and remain aligned to the mission and vision of the business.
For VCs funding startups, consider it a partnership and look for entrepreneurs you can work with.
For entrepreneurs raising funding, consider it a partnership as well and ask if you want them as a partner for your business?
This brings some clarity to the funding process.
