A+stage VCs say:
Professional portfolio management is crucial for the success of the VC fund, especially when the "winter" is coming
Talking to different VC funds we realized, there is a lack of knowledge in the portfolio management area. Even though the exit is still far away, portfolio management is one of the crucial things, which influences the overall success of the whole fund and the future of startup teams.
Especially when the "VC winter" decreases the number of deals and the amount of money, available from LPs, it more than ever makes sense to focus on the professional management of the VC portfolio.
