Josh Kopelman of First Round Capital recently laid out the 5 phases of a General Partner at a VC or PE fund. We analyzed the data.
- Phase 1 – Complete Innocence – hard working, honest and humble
- Phase 2 – Entitlement – thinks he deserves a private jet
- Phase 3 – Delusion – doesn’t think his poo poo stinks
- Phase 4 – Psychosis – becomes close minded, blames others for problems
- Phase 5 – Insanity
Josh asked us via Twitter if we could use our data to analyze this. We did. The results are above.
