Outperform! Metrics for VC Funds

(Image from Equity Effect 2019)
  1. Internal Rate of Return — IRR (Gross & Net)
  1. Distribution of returns: Research who are the main Venture Capital funds by geography and by fund size on each vintage year and focus on those whose returns are in the first quartile, or even better in the first decile. If the manager does not have a track record as a fund, focus on his individual track record as an angel investor or as a champion in other investment vehicles.
  2. Diversification: Build a diversified portfolio by vintage, investment stage, geography, and industry. This will give you the opportunity to mitigate risk and perceive the returns on innovation in different verticals.
