A typical VC fund has a life of up to 10 years. A lot can happen in a decade, and you can’t avoid every threat. However, with proper business and financial planning as well as risk mitigation practices, you can come prepared to the battlefield. In the forth module, you learn both about the front-end as well as the back-end of the VC business. We discuss value-creation strategies to grow your portfolio

To help you choose the right exit strategy for your portfolio companies, we also present best practices and failures to avoid.
