STEP 1: Portfolio Review & Risk / Needs Analysis

 

We work closely with an investment team to identify the human capital risks within their portfolio.

We design a bespoke annual program of initiatives to solve against these. We attend regular investment meetings to help identify and solve against emergent problems.

STEP 2: Annual Series of Embedded Touch Points in the VC Ecosystem

The exact content of this will depend on risks and needs identified, but often includes:
 

  • key issue workshops, events and webinars such as: 

    • leading high-performance teams

    • managing conflict

    • building strong investor relations

    • stress-management
       

  • investee offsites or away-days

STEP 3: Spot Interventions for Investees
 

Drop in/as needed sessions for individual founders and their teams, typically include:
 

  • founder fireside sessions

  • founder/team health-check

  • team boost

Portfolio Leadership Scan

We work with your partner team to analyse how founders in your portfolio will be challenged over the next 12 months.
 


 

Our goal is to explore where your founders are exposed before it becomes critical, enabling early action.
 
We identify, (i) green, no issue anticipated, (ii) amber, significant challenges expected in the next six months, (iii) red, immediate problems evident.
 


 

From this, we advise on interventions to address amber & red issues.
