VC Benchmark Sessions
Everyday best practices to work (better) in a VC fund.
The VC Benchmark Sessions are private roundtable discussions that gather professionals working in venture capital funds to share everyday best practices related to working in a VC fund. The goal of these sessions is to discuss and compare fund-related tasks and activities, such as pipeline management, LP reporting, and communication. The discussions are confidential and constructive, and each participant is expected to share their fund-related activity.
-Confidential roundtable discussions after work (ca 4-6 pm)
-Ideally 5-10 attendees, preferably one person from each fund
-During each session, a topic relevant for professionals working in VC funds is discussed
-Before each session, participants write down their views on the topic on a shared document (gSlides, gDocs) – answers with names or anonymously
-The goal of the sessions is to gather (and eventually share) findings, in order to develop the (Finnish) VCs
