It’s all about the investment team. The long-term nature of venture fund investing requires LPs to conduct rigorous and detail-oriented due diligence processes. This is because issues related to alignment of interest, governance and transparency with VC manager relationships have increased over the years. LPs’ due diligence process focus on a fund manager’s functional expertise such as the ones listed below:

  • Investment Strategy
  • Team
  • Legal/Fund Terms
  • Alignment of Interest
  • Investment Process: Sourcing, Due diligence, Monitoring, and Exiting
  • Track Record
  • Governance/Risk/Compliance
  • Back office: Accounting/Valuation/Reporting

Ultimately, LPs are trying to determine whether they’re going to make money investing in the team. Come hear what a seasoned GP has to say about due diligence experience with LPs.
