Measuring the impact of a VC platform strategy
Cory Bolotosky of True Search (and formerly of Underscore VC) does a nice summary of a few of the biggest impact ways he sees platform teams doing for their companies: https://twitter.com/bolotsky/status/1084559586416381952 But of course, it does beg a series of questions about the intended output of all of this work:
If 100% of VC firms are now offering events and programming to their portfolio companies, does it dilute the overall impact?
Are these services becoming commoditized to the point of them being meaningless?
And -- If you can't prove the direct link from any of these singular efforts, is it even worth having these teams at all?
