Hey there – We wanted to provide a quick recap of all of the major functionality that we’ve launched in April. As always feel free to send us any feedback, questions or comments.

Data Labels on Charts

You can now add the actual value on the data point on your charts. This will display the actual values of the respective metric on the chart itself.

We suggest using charts with 8 or less data points to utilize data labels or you’ll quickly overcrowd the visualization.

Chart Annotations

While you are creating or updating a chart you can now call out specific data points and add your own context through annotations. Simply click on any data point and add in text.

Goals

With any chart you can now add a goal, benchmark line or threshold targets. Simply navigate to the Options tab to customize your different goals and benchmarks.

File Attachments in Updates

Visible Updates now support file attachments. They’ll be available as one-click downloads and we’ll automatically detect the file type and add a nice icon for you! They are great for more granular financial statements, presentations or supplemental data sets.

Table support in our text editor

Our Updates text editor now supports tables. They are great for structuring any of your qualitative information in Updates.

Other minor yet useful improvements:

  • Better support for copying and pasting text from other text editors into Visible Updates!
  • A very beautiful looking success message once you publish an Update in Visible.

[Webinar Registration] VC Fund Performance Metrics to Share When it’s ‘Early’ with Preface Ventures
It’s common for venture firms to start raising their next fund in the last year of capital deployment, typically years 3-4 of a fund’s life. This poses a sort of chicken-and-egg problem because many of the common fund performance metrics that Limited Partners use to drive allocation decisions only become reliable, and therefore more meaningful, around year six (Source: Cambridge Associates). Farooq Abbasi, founder and General Partner of Preface Ventures, created a Seed Stage Enterprise VC Funding Napkin to help GPS think through alternative fund metrics that help communicate performance outside the traditional indicators that LPs use to measure success for more mature funds. The Seed Stage Enterprise VC Funding Napkin is inspired by Christoph Janz’s Saas Funding Napkin which helps answer, “which KPI's indicate a company is in a good position to raise another round of funding in this environment?”. This version created by Preface Ventures answers the question for fund managers, “What needs to be true about a seed-stage fund to raise another fund”? Join us next Tuesday, February 27th for a discussion with Farooq Abbasi from Preface Ventures about the fund performance metrics GPs should share when their current fund is still 'early'. Learn more and register for the webinar below.
