I’m on a mission to improve investment returns by focusing on entrepreneurial teams.
I do so by building a bridge between academic research and the entrepreneurial community. Great academic work is out there on very relevant topics, such as how team composition can predict venture outcomes, how co-investing can increase portfolio performance and how misalignment on vision between entrepreneurs and investors can lead to dysfunctional team dynamics .
However, since most of this research is published in scientific journals that are very difficult to read for non-academics, people that deal with these those topics on a day to day basis – such as entrepreneurs, investors and start-up mentors – miss out on this knowledge. This is a lost opportunity, as information changes situations and enables better decision-making.
Eva’s Insights and Team-X are a starting point for making more impact with scientific research in the venture community and empower better investment decisions.
