review.chicagobooth.edu | Many entrepreneurs hope to attract the attention—and support—of venture capitalists, but very few of them will. What are VCs looking for in their investments? Is a great business idea more important than a strong management team? Chicago Booth's Hal Weitzman talks with Booth faculty Steve Kaplan and Ira Weiss and Katherine Wanner of Abundant Venture Partners about start-up funding from the VC perspective.
The Big Question is a monthly video series from Capital Ideas at Chicago Booth. Every month, we ask Booth faculty and invited guests for their perspectives on important issues. We cover a broad range of themes, from the US economy to the fate of the euro, from political polarization to the future of retail, and all points in between. For intelligent, thought-provoking, in-depth discussion, join us every month for the Big Question. And, join the conversation on Twitter with @BoothCapIdeas #BoothBigQ.
