Hey GPs - In the last few weeks I’ve had multiple asks about emerging manager benchmarks/what we are seeing for 2019 (and other recent) vintages. So here’s a quick 🧵 breaking down what we see in the case of 2019 venture funds and the greater LP context… #OpenLPP

1) The business of venture capital is going thru more upheaval now than at anytime in my >2 decades as a VC / founder / startup operator. This includes dotcom bubble/burst ’99-01 and Great Recession ’09-10. *BUT* some tenets of VC remain completely true, both now & in future. 💵
