“Spend some time with the team to shadow and see what they actually do day to day, before you join. It’s invaluable because it gives you an opportunity to try before you buy.” 

In part 3 of our bite-sized ‘Operator to VC’ feature, Rosie Barnett, Principal at Delin Ventures, talks to us about making the transition to VC. 

We hear the criteria Rosie looked at when deciding which VC to join and the crucial steps she took to adapt to the new industry. 

She also shares some of the great communities she’s a part of and why immersing herself ahead of becoming a VC has been so helpful.
