How do VC associates/analysts measure success when funds see returns after 7+ years but the stint of an average associate/analyst is around 3 years?
In the end, the only thing anyone outside the firm will care about is if you sourced a few good deals.
They won’t care about the entry price, the absolute return, the IRR, or any of that.
But if you sourced a few good deals, that’s what people keep score on.
No one outside the firm will care about anything else.
