You don't necessarily need an IC. If you want it, you can build it however it's up to you how you build it. Some have only the GPs. Others have an LP and others have a set of key individuals that are uniquely qualified to do well. That being said, you don't need one, and it depends on your investment strategy and pace.

As an emerging manager, many of you will have detailed technical, operational, market or business experience in your investment areas - so will be uniquely suited to diligence your deals.
As a small fund, most of your investments will likely be following or participating in syndicated rounds, in these cases work with the other investors and leverage their deal memo and diligence work, or agree to share diligence efforts. Though don't be afraid to lead - even with a small check!
This pays off strategically in creating long-term relationships for sharing dealflow and syndication.
