In this TechCrunch article, Dan Miller outlines common pitfalls he sees in talent searches with VC firms in particular, as well as some thoughts on how firms can improve their hiring processes, in order to work toward having more diverse representation within their investing teams.
The readings and educational resources listed here revolve around one of Venture Forward’s four mission pillars: Education – educating the next generation of VCs and equipping them with the skills to succeed. In curating these materials, we prioritize resources that provide actionable guidance and tools or durable information, as opposed to opinion pieces or general commentary.
This is not an exhaustive list of readings, commentary, or educational resources available on venture capital, but rather, ones focused on providing meaningful, long-term value.
