How do VCs view familial founding teams?
Jamie Goldstein Partner at Pillar
Pillar VC’s Founding Partner Jamie Goldstein says VC’s don’t generally view familial founding teams well and prefer to avoid that situation if possible. It could turn out that one of the founding members of the pair may not be doing great inside the company so need a new role or even exit. Then the other founding member is put at risk because of the actions you may need to take with the first member.
