Venture Capital Principals

Advancement Prospects

Principals who demonstrate their ability to generate good deals and strong returns on investment are promoted to the position of partner, who have similar duties as principals, but focus on big-picture issues and have the authority to approve investments and exits. A highly skilled partner can eventually become a managing partner, who oversees the entire firm. Some venture capitalists may leave the field and become chief financial officers, CEOs, or chief operating officers.
