We want to be a trusted partner/advisor to our entrepreneurs who are our customers and have chosen us an investors. We are a small team but we want to help w/ strategic advice, fundraising, hiring and recruiting, and M&A. In the end, VCs need to recognize that for the all the talk of being value add, the entrepreneur is the driving force behind the success of the company. VCs can certainly help that process and provide advice/framework for decision-making but we aren’t in the office everyday running the company. I want to invest in someone who has a better understanding of their domain than I do, or else it is a bad investment.
