How Venture Fund Economics Work

Fred Wilson has an excellent post up today titled Venture Fund EconomicsIt appears to be the first of several posts he’s planning to write on this topic.

"When I write about venture fund returns, there are always comments and questions that lead me to believe that the economics of a venture fund are not well understood. And since most of the readers and commenters on this blog are people who work in the startup ecosystem, I think its important that the economics are better understood. So I am planning on some posts on this topic in the coming weeks."

Everyone that is interested in venture capital in any way should read this post (and presumably the subsequent ones.)  I’ll try to remember to point them out when they appear.
