Episode Summary

Every day, on the phone and at the firm’s events across the U.S., AVG’s investment teams speak with smart people who ask great questions. Chief among them centers on asset allocation and diversification: Why, at the simplest level, is it important? And how can venture capital take a good mix of investments to a great one? Diversification, after all, isn’t just a buzz word—it’s an actionable strategy with promise.

Today on Founders & Funders, Laura Rippy and Lacey Johnson tell us why and how this is true. They’ll unpack the rationale behind diversification in a way that’s helpful no matter where you are in your investing journey. They’ll talk about time horizons and risk tolerance and other relevant concepts, and they’ll have some fun while doing it.
