For a detailed explanation of IRR, exit/return multiples, and why an investor must target a higher return on each individual investment than the overall portfolio, read more in our IRR vs. Exit Multiple blog post. The video lesson available for free in our Level 1 (Novice) course, Module 2, Lesson 3 at Crowdwise Academy.

Note: for "Target Portfolio IRR", this field should be your target rate of return for your portfolio of startup investments only. For example, if startups comprise 5% of your total investment portfolio, the IRR here should be the target IRR for that 5% of your portfolio, not including other investments or your overall portfolio's rate of return.
