Venture Capitalist – Sifting the wheat from the chaff

VCs seek founders with disruptive business ideas which can take off and generate returns for them.

They not only provide funding but also at times guidance, network etc. that may help the founders grow the startup

The job is not easy. It’s like playing Russian Roulette with LPs (Investors who provide money to the VCs) money

Venture capitalists focus/specialize in startups and new companies because they know that these are the businesses that can become the next big thing, making them very valuable to their investors

They understand the risk involved and are willing to take a chance on smaller companies which a bank or other traditional financing institutions may not

At times, VCs have to act like human lie detectors. They check if the founders have the credibility and legitimacy, if all the individual parts of the founders' story are true, if all the parts of the story fit together to eventually decide if the founder deserves the ultimate reward...the money and a jumpstart to an entrepreneurial journey.

Investment decisions are like sifting the wheat from the chaff and requires a mix of scepticism and optimism.
