Free Copy of The Lower-Risk Startup: How Venture Capitalists Increase the Odds of Startup Success


One of my responsibilities at ff Venture Capital is helping to accelerate value creation in our portfolio companies. I published the first research study on this topic in the Journal of Private EquitypeHubBetabeat, and Techcrunch. The Journal of Private Equity has now (temporarily) made our full study available for complimentary download: The Lower-Risk Startup: How Venture Capitalists Increase the Odds of Startup Success. They also just posted a video interview with me on our research, embedded below.

My coauthors were three all-star MBAs from Columbia Business School, all McKinsey and BCG consultants by background. If you’d like to work with us on future research studies, visit the ffVC jobs page. I’ve also attached below a presentation I delivered on our conclusions.
