    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hercules Capital (New York, NY)


    One screen call with an upper manager. Interview day was was five stages (30 mins each) with mostly upper management and execs. The interviews were mostly behavioral, with two of the interviewers asking technical finance questions about tech startups and types of valuations.

    what approach did you take to fixing a bad investment? Of the three, what financial statement is the most important? Give me two or three examples of KPIs.
