We can all agree that first impressions are important. Whether we like it or not, our first interactions with someone or something, often sets the tone for the duration of the relationship. This holds true when it comes to welcoming a new company into your fund’s portfolio as well. Which is why it’s important for Venture Capital Platforms to provide new portfolio companies with an organized, well-thought-out, first impression to their post investment support resources. This will help with company <> Platform engagement and is an opportunity to live up to your fund’s brand promise.
