a16z Podcast: How To Understand And Choose A Venture Investor


July 17, 2019 14:53

00:00 / 26:02

Incentives matter. So understanding the incentives of venture capitalists will
help you decide if raising money from a venture investor makes sense for your
business. In this first of a 3-part series, which originally aired as YouTube
videos, a16z Managing Partner Scott Kupor talks with Frank Chen about how
venture capital works: how the money flows, what Limited Partners (the
organizations that invest in venture capitalists) are looking for, what
differentiates the top investors, and what all of this means for an
entrepreneur raising money. Want to learn more? Read Scott's book "Secrets of
Sand Hill Road: Venture Capital and How to Get It" (
