Going Deep @ Chapter One
Writing every week is hard, especially when you start a new full-time gig! After writing for 10 straight weeks this summer / fall and building a foundation for @TheFundCFO newsletter, I took some time off to dive in full-time @chapterone. It’s been busy and exciting transitioning from a mile wide to a mile deep!
To learn more about the move, you can check out the thread I shared via Twitter.
Good news! @Chapterone values building in public across functions, including finance and investing, where I’m spending a lot of time. We are a small team with each of us having a hand in all the functions that go into building the firm.
The Modern Venture Capital CFO
While I haven’t been writing much, I’ve been reading a lot! I’ll be sharing highlights from some insightful articles in the coming weeks and how they relate to the day-to-day execution as a Venture Capital CFO.
One post I really appreciated (and that was forwarded to me a lot :)) was “The Modern Venture Capital CFO” by Quaestor, an automated financial data platform firm that has raised money from 8VC, Spark, Abstract, GFC, Fathom, and Riot.
I won’t rewrite the post here but please read in full if you’re interested! I’ve outlined the sections below and shared the pyramid illustration of the key VC CFO functions - more discussion to come!
