What VCs Look for In A CEO

December 26th, 2006 · No Comments

VC Confidential writes about some of the attributes:

Resourceful: he/she should be weary of raising capital and be thoughtful about taking on any dilution. Large capital raises limits exit potentials, defocuses management and ends up usually being wasted.

Relentless: Technology is all about being the market leader (as they say, who was the second person to fly across the Atlantic?). I like CEO’s who are competitive and paranoid about the competition.

Creative Thought: we appreciate entrepreneurs who look at problems differently. Successful companies do so not by doing things the same way as their competitors.
