Startup Grind Beijing is hosting Chrys Chrysanthou Partner at Kindred

Oct 17, 2019, 10:30 AM – 1:00 PM

There’s a certain irony about venture capital. VCs demand that companies we invest in can “scale” and yet, VC is about the most unscaleable business invented. First, we have to meet a huge amount of companies to find the very few we invest in. And then one VC partner has to manage a whole portfolio of startups — typically, a partner might end up managing 7 or 8 companies by the end of the fund.

And then one VC partner has to manage a whole portfolio of startups — typically, a partner might end up managing 7 or 8 companies by the end of the fund.

With judicious juggling and experience, this is manageable. But could it be more efficient? This was one area the Kindred partners were thinking deeply about when we came together in 2015, with the mission to create the kind of VC we would have liked to have raised capital from when we were running startups ourselves.“

Come to our event on October 17th to learn about Equity Ventures - the new model for investing. We will dive into the following questions during our fireside chat with Chrys Chrysanthou: 

• What is the classical way of earning money for a VC? And how is Equity Ventures any different?

• How can the concept of stock option programmes be applied to Venture Capital?

• What does Equity Ventures mean for founders and why should they consider this model for potential investment?

• How can this new investment model help to build healthier startup communities?
