From the Editor
Optimizing fund size for realistic thinkers and lucky buggers
Israeli VC management companies raising new or first-time funds, often have to deal with the question of the optimum fund size. How much money will ensure the GPs freedom to invest and follow promising companies to a profitable exit while making sure it’s not too much? In other words, how to get enough capital and at the same time hedge against having a fund too large to bring any value to the LPs.
