Why the VC market is changing and how to succeed it

More money is entering venture capital today than ever before. This means more career opportunities for investors, and funding options for founders.

In this episode, you'll hear from Check Warner, parter at Ada's Ventures, and co-Founder of Diversity VC. Check talks about her career transition from advertising to VC, how the venture industry is changing and how that affects founders.

Learning notes from this episode:

  • Networking is a key part of a VC's job. If this is a career you want, build your network with founders, other VCs and larger funds that invest in venture.
  • To be a successful tech VC, you do need to learn how to speak tech, but you definitely don't need to be a coder yourself.
  • More money is entering the VC market and more funds are being set up. VC funds are often small, unlike other firms in the financing market. 
  • The widening VC market and the growth of no code tools means more opportunities for non-technical founders to succeed.
