Schaufeld, Jerome


This Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP), which was for partial fulfillment of graduation requirements which looked to figure out how to become a Venture Capitalist. In particular, finding one path to becoming one. Since Venture Capitalists are their own small business the original plan was to make a business plan describing how I would start to become a Venture Capitalist. This would have taken too long to fulfill the requirement of WPI. Instead, I evaluated and studied articles to find patterns before contacting Venture Capitalist. Which led to finding interviews already conducted since there was a lack in responses. Through this process I was able to come up with some recommendations on how to start and define what a Venture Capitalist is in terms of a business.
