The Day to Day
The core function of a VC firm is to see as many deals as possible. As such, a lot of your job will be to speak to as many entrepreneurs as possible, ascertaining their growth prospects and momentum. You’ll attend events and build your network. You’ll learn how to screen businesses, making quick assessments that are both qualitative and quantitative. You’ll participate in the full deal lifecycle, seeing how deals are sourced, vetted, and invested in.
For the other part of the program, you’ll select a specific TXV portfolio company and get a sense of how a startup is run. You’ll do research on the sector, understanding the markets in which the company operates and how the company we backed can win in that sector. Once getting a sense of how the company works, you’ll assist the portfolio company in whichever way they can be supported- sitting in on strategy sessions, sourcing experts, doing market research, and talking to customers.
- Interview 5-10 companies a week for 8 weeks
- Write a research report on a TXV portfolio company
- Complete a market-mapping of a particular sector
