Winter Mead of Oper8r joins Nick to discuss How to Raise a VC Fund, The YC for Emerging Managers, and Family Office Trends. In this episode we cover:

  • Tell us a little more about Oper8or. Why did you leave Sapphire to start this program?
  • Give us an overview of Oper8or?
  • Walk us through the selection process and what you're looking for.
  • Bring us up to speed on progress-to-date, how you measure success, and what the plan is going forward?
  • You published your first book last year -- “How to Raise a Venture Capital Fund”. The target audience for the book is fairly obvious... was the motivation to write the book similar to why you started Oper8r?
  • What are the most common mistakes new fund managers make?
  • How do you think about types of LPs or profiles that fund managers should be targeting?
  • What are the patterns, practices or even tactics of the most successful fundraisers that you've observed?
  • You co-authored a research effort w/ First Republic on Family Office Investors -- what were the key takeaways?
  • What are some of the common reasons that LPs pass that might not be so obvious?
  • What's the biggest difference between winning fund strategies of the early 2010s vs winning fund strategies in the next decade?
  • What factor do you find to be of critical importance that is most often underappreciated by LPs?
  • Currently over 1500 active venture funds... Do you think the market can support this high of a volume of funds?
  • Often, a startup investor may get early positive or negative signals on an investment within the first 18-24 months. As an LP, how long does it take to get a sense whether the decision to invest was good or you might want to have that one back?
  • Why is emerging VC compelling as an sub-asset class of VC?
