Partner inflation?

Sifted has an article about the partner title becoming more common in European venture capital. And seemingly making it more difficult for founders to figure our who are final decision-makers at a fund.

Understanding who the true decision makers are at a fund, helps founders navigate fundraising better. At Alliance VC we keep it simple, all investment roles are full partners, as we think that is the best long-term approach when seed investing.

You don’t need a partner title to be a good investor, but founders should know if they’re talking with a partner who can write cheques or a principal with a nicer title.
