Credit Ratings and Venture

This is truly just an idea.

Early 2023, you saw one of the most urgent VC scares seen in over 20 years. The industry, basically, almost, ish, collapsed.

At moment, many GPs called eachother scrambling to figure out two things :

1) should they care about their portcos - at that moment?

2) how they should help.

The correct response from good GPs with sub-250M AUM, especially seed funds, was to take out personal loans and offer it to portcos.

Granted - I haven’t really put this idea across to anyone in the formal credit-ratings industry - I think that moment of exposure for higher than 250-AUM caused for a burst of short-term loans and lines of credit.

Before you roll your eyes, there’s been a history of venture and loans. The following have exposure to credit or debt, but it’s unclear if the exposure uses an independent line taken out by the MP.
