Venture Capital Principal

What is a Venture Capital Principal?

Principals at venture capital firms are senior employees who are more senior than associates and analysts. They’re more junior than partners but may be on a partner track. 

Similar to an associate, principals may help source and execute deals for the firm. But while an associate spends time preparing presentations and performing due diligence on a deal, the principal might review the work before negotiating terms. 

Principals also help support portfolio companies, and they may be more involved with the companies’ day-to-day operations and needs than the VC firm’s partners.
