I’m working at Chicago Ventures as Entrepreneur in Residence, a unique position that I believe will make me a more strategic founder for years to come.
Really Well Written Post Emma, Enjoyed learning about the insights of VC world. As a I understand VC business is a Hits driven business and you have spread your bets on the contrary, As entrepreneurs we have to focus all our energy into a single vision. There is so much common and yet Entrepreneur and VCs coexist. Thank you for sharing your lessons learned.
Great run down on why Chicago Ventures was the perfect complement to the MBA and how your founder superpowers are growing. I wonder what value the role of EIR brings to the firm - is it primarily a mentorship role to portfolio companies or does it go beyond that
