My partner Ben and I have been active angel investors for years and now full-time venture capitalists for 9 months. But prior to that (and for most our lives), we've been entrepreneurs.
Now that we've sat on both sides of the table—and have spent more time with other venture capitalists—my partner Ben has a few observations to share about what he likes and dislikes about what some VCs do. Mostly what he dislikes. Though to be fair, he has recommendations for behavior he'd like to see instead, so it's not just a rant.
And yes, there's a quote from a rap artist (Dr. Dre, to be precise).
