Here’s What You Missed at LP Office Hours in Boston

by & filed under NVCA Blog, VentureForward.

Maryam Haque

We created the VentureForward initiative last year with the goal of expanding opportunities for people of all backgrounds to thrive in the venture ecosystem. We believe that education and powerful relationships can increase representation of women, minorities, immigrants, and other underrepresented groups. That’s why we’ve partnered with Greenspring Associates to provide an opportunity for diverse emerging fund managers to have candid conversations throughout our LP Office Hours events.

After a successful launch in San Francisco last July, we hosted a second NVCA-Greenspring LP Office Hours, this time at Openview’s office in Boston. We provide an afternoon of 1:1 meetings, roundtable peer discussions, and a Q&A so that new VCs can get advice from LPs and experienced GPs about the fundraising process and relationship management.

We Want YOU to Help us Understand the Current State of Human Capital in VC

by & filed under Diversity, NVCA Blog, VentureForward.

Bobby Franklin

In today’s world, having good, trusted data and using it effectively is a key component of running a successful company, VC firm, or practically any other type of organization. Good data is that important.

That creed is just as applicable when it comes to efforts to improve opportunity for underrepresented groups in the venture industry and build more innovative and collaborative teams. We at NVCA believe that in order to create informed solutions, we must understand the current state of the workforce and benchmark that against our findings from 2016. Having reliable, fresh data on the composition of the venture industry is greatly needed to continue to monitor our progress and identify areas to improve diversity and inclusion in our community.
