The importance of talent due diligence in private equity and venture capital
Great products often go a long way to sort the wheat from the chaff, but the biggest differentiator is the people.
It’s clear to see that even when a certain industry, segment, or vertical is struggling, best-in-class talent and leadership overcomes the challenges and outperforms the competition. The most effective shops have learned to bet on talent as the primary driver of the investment thesis.
