How Does Data Influence LP and GP Decisions?
April 5, 2019
Table of contents

Last month I had the opportunity to speak at SuperReturn365 on a panel focused on how LPs and GPs use data in our respective business.  Some of the questions Tom Henriksson, Suranga Chandratillake, Mish Mashkautsan, Kart Siilats and I explored included:

  • How and where GPs and LPs leverage data – Sourcing? Diligence? Post investment? As well as other creative ways.
  • How we believe data adds competitive advantage to our work
  • What tools we use for managing data, and
  • What limitations we have found of using data
