#OpenLP is an effort to help foster greater understanding in the entrepreneur-to-LP tech ecosystem.

This site is intended to be a resource for the venture community to hear from a diverse group of investors in venture funds (LPs). By aggregating articles and blogs from LPs, OpenLP aims to help entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, LPs and other stakeholders develop and share greater understanding of the technology startup ecosystem.
