Chris Douvos began his career at the Princeton University Investment Company before becoming the co-head of Private Equity Investing at The Investment Fund for Foundations. Currently, Chris is the Managing Director of fund-of-funds Venture Investment Associates, and is well-known for his blog “Super LP.”
In this fireside chat, Chris examines the manner in which he and his companies identify talented venture capitalists and promising funds, and balance institutional portfolios to minimize risk and maximize potential rewards. Chris also discusses the manner in which LP investment strategies adjust with changing economic trends and the corresponding adjustment in the role of an institutional investor.
