This paper investigates whether individual venture capitalists have repeatable
investment skill and to what extent their skill is impacted by the VC firm
where they work. We examine a unique dataset that tracks the performance
of individual venture capitalists’ investments across time and as they move
between firms. We find evidence of skill and exit style differences even among
venture partners investing at the same VC firm at the same time. Furthermore,
our estimates suggest the partner’s human capital is two to five times
more important than the VC firm’s organizational capital in explaining performance
