Renata Quintini and
Roseanne Wincek are the Co-Founders and Managing Partners of
Renegade Partners, a venture capital firm they launched in 2019
after each experienced life inside top-notch venture firms – Renata
at Felicis and Lux and Rosanne at Canaan Partners and IVP.
They raised a first fund of $100 million to focus on the
“Supercritical Stage” of a company’s development.
Our conversation discusses the dynamics of a venture capital
spinout and the nuances of a stage-focused strategy. First, we dive
into their backgrounds, lessons learned from their experience,
forming a partnership and strategy together, and going to market.
Then, we discuss Renegade’s investment process across sourcing,
filtering, winning deals, and working with companies. We close with
perspectives on the competitive landscape, battle for talent, and
areas of growth internally, including the application of our mutual
friend Annie Duke’s decision
theories to the practice of venture investing.
