For the longest time, the only way to become a professional investor was to join an established VC fund. They were the gatekeepers, they picked new fund managers. Raising your own fund is a relatively new concept. It's an amazing opportunity for those willing to risk starting from scratch, of becoming founders.
Tech is mainstream and LPs of all types want access to the best startups. Deregulation on who can invest in VC funds and the popularity of crowdfunding platforms have combined to make a debut fund within grasp for any angel with good deal flow.
With so many pathways into investing, where do you start? You could angel invest, you could scout, you could lead a syndicate, you could raise a rolling fund, a closed fund, or perhaps something else.
And bring together the people and resources we wish existed when we were starting Afore Capital in 2016.
