Publisher's Summary

Since its initial publication, The Business of Venture Capital has been hailed as the definitive, most comprehensive book on the subject. Now in its third edition, this market-leading guide explains the multiple facets of the business of venture capital, from raising venture funds, to structuring investments, to generating consistent returns, to evaluating exit strategies. 

This fully-updated edition includes fresh perspectives on the Softbank effect, career paths for young professionals, case studies and cultural disasters, investment models, epic failures, and more. Listeners are guided through each stage of the VC process, supported by a companion website containing tools such as the LP-GP Fund Due Diligence Checklist, the Investment Due Diligence Checklist, an Investment Summary format, and links to white papers and other industry guidelines. Designed for experienced practitioners, angels, devils, and novices alike, this valuable resource: identifies the key attributes of a VC professional and the arc of an investor's career; covers the art of raising a venture fund, identifying anchor investors, fund due diligence, negotiating fund investment terms with limited partners, and more; examines the distinct aspects of portfolio construction and value creation; and balances technical analyses and real-world insights.

Very generic and dated

Got through a few chapters. It almost feels like this book was relevant for almost a decade back. Strategies and approaches are very different today.

Great value, a must read for anyone thinking of getting into the VC world

I wasn’t sure what to expect, it’s difficult for me to learn something without a back and forward exchange. But this audiobook successfully narrated the in and outs of the VC world. From describing what type of personalities do well as VC’s to how to find funding. I highly recommend this audiobook.
