Crafting A Winning Management Team " (5 min)

Venture capital investing in its best sense is all about building a winning management team. Success comes from using a team sport approach, understanding what motivates the entrepreneur and working to satisfy that motivation. An effective win strategy concentrates on moving the company from a focus on technology to driving revenue generation. Laura Lukaczyk, Avansis Ventures, discusses these issues and shares some best practices for creating a winning management team. She talks about:

1. avoiding a control position
2. feeling your way to success and creating an information mosaic
3. peeling back issues
4. articulating the company vision
5. developing strategic and tactical approaches to sell to customer sets
6. attracting staff with multiple skill sets and relevant domain experience
7. identifying and working with the “pack leader”
