VC-InsideOut Podcast Launches

Posted on September 28, 2006

VC-IOI received a note today from Levensohn Venture Partners announcing their new podcast series called VC-InsideOut. It looks to be a great podcast and I think it will be very useful for many of us out there. Here is the synopsis from the note I received:

The first two episodes of VC-InsideOut, a podcast program on the Venture Capital industry developed and produced by the investment professionals at Levensohn Venture Partners, are available for streaming and downloads on the web at

VC-InsideOut opens a window into the venture capital industry through constructive dialogue and interviews with leading VCs, entrepreneurs, and other influential leaders involved with the VC world. VC-InsideOut episodes feature original content developed and produced by Pascal Levensohn, Keith Benjamin, Kip Sheeline, Steve Reale, and Jeff Karras on a range of subjects relevant to the venture capital industry.

Typical episodes run between 10 and 12 minutes. You can stream the content from our website, or download it to iTunes or your favorite media player. By clicking on Subscribe, you can be notified of new episodes when they are added to the website.

VC-InsideOut kicks off with two separate series, the Governance Series and the Entrepreneur Series.

About the VC-InsideOut Governance Series

How and why are VC boards different from other boards? What are some of the common problems faced by VC-backed company boards? Are there early warning signs of trouble in the board room? What are some of the signs of effective and ineffective venture boards and directors? VC-InsideOut tackles these and other important governance questions head-on in this series of interviews and editorial commentary on the state of VC boards. Each episode makes clear recommendations about best practices that can be useful to VCs and entrepreneurs in the field.

Levensohn Venture Partners proactively advocates best practices in governance and has published groundbreaking articles on the subject since 1999. Two well known collaborative white papers on VC governance topics-”After the Term Sheet: How Venture Boards Impact the Success or Failure of Technology Companies” and “Rites of Passage: Managing CEO Transition in Venture Backed Technology Companies” are freely available for download on the Levensohn Venture Partners website at .

About the VC-InsideOut Entrepreneur Series

Is my idea good enough to attract VC funding? How do I make a real business plan out of inspiration? What should my pitch to VCs include? What are some common mistaken assumptions that entrepreneurs make about VCs? What do VCs need to know about entrepreneurs but are afraid to ask?

The VC-InsideOut Entrepreneur Series is focused on enabling entrepreneurs to gain access to the information, insights, and tools needed to build successful technology companies. Leading entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and other service providers share their experiences on the “ins and outs” of creating an idea, business plans, hiring teams, raising capital, and building businesses that scale.

Pascal Levensohn has done some great work on Venture Capital boards so I know the Governance series will be very insightful for both entrepreneurs and even VCs. The entrepreneur series looks like it will add a lot of value as well. I hear entrepreneurs asking questions like the ones in the box above all the time so hearing a firm like Levensohn Venture Partners answer them should be a real treat.

If you guys take a listen please add comments here about what you thought of the shows. Well, I am off to board a flight to California for the Podcast and Portable Media Expo but before I do I’d like to welcome Levensohn Venture Partners into the podcast family. I am looking forward to the future of VC-InsideOut and to what I will learn as a result.
