043 - From Entrepreneur to Venture Capitalist

June 24, 2016
In this episode, I am answering Darnell’s (Hampton, VA) question:  How do I Transition from an Entrepreneur to Venture Capitalist?

There are several examples of successful entrepreneurs becoming serial entrepreneurs and eventually venture capitalists.  Motivations could include, high non-executive earnings potential, curiosity, and desire to be involved in state of the art technologies with smart, driven entrepreneurs, a stimulating lifestyle, and the ability to mentor smart and successful people.  

These are all possible reasons. The most valid business reason, however, is to use venture capital to leverage your skills and network.

In this episode, I describe how to acquire the knowledge to play in the VC world and six different tactics that an entrepreneur might use to get exposure and even immersion in venture capital.
