A Product Roadmap For Up-And-Coming VCs
This is a reblog of my guest post on TechCrunch
Earlier this year, I had the good fortune of becoming the youngest partner at Bain Capital Ventures. (BCV). There’s a lot of work ahead to make sure I make the most of that opportunity and so I find myself reflecting on the personal “product roadmap” that got me here and the “features” I want to double-down on. Perhaps these ideas can be a helpful framework for other up–and–coming investors and to founders who are trying to evaluate the types of VCs they want to work with.
