Once becoming a part of the venture industry, it’s not that easy to give it up. However, there are many examples when VCs make the jump to entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs turn investors. Both parties have a lot to bring to the table. The skills might be different, but they are complementary and help get a much broader vision. The Finance PM team decided to sit together with some great investors and entrepreneurs and discuss these transitions, pitfalls, and pearls from different perspectives.
