Summary

Despite all of the writing on venture capital, there is a missing part of the literature. There has been no book written about raising a venture capital fund. It remains a secret to a few privileged venture capitalists who have gone through this fundraising process. Until now....

This book serves as a guide. It dives into the process of raising a venture capital fund, the how-tos, the unique language of the limited partner (LP) world, secrets of how LPs think about fund diligence and alignment, the best practices in fundraising, what works, and how you can best prepare for success.

I've written this book after spending a decade investing into venture capital funds at a 30-billion-dollar wealth management firm and a 160-billion-dollar technology company. I've been on both sides of the table, the VC and the LP side. I've been behind the scenes managing every aspect of the fundraising process, investing into 80 funds, and reviewing thousands of fund investments. I also cofounded a company that specifically focuses on cobuilding venture capital businesses, which includes helping VCs understand the intricate dynamics of raising a venture capital fund. After listening to my book, you will gain the knowledge and insights gained from these experiences.
