Hey everyone! 👋 Hope your Monday is going great.
I gave a talk at the Starta Accelerator in NYC last week. It was a lot of fun!
I talk about how the venture capital market works, my investing approach, and today’s pullback in fundraising. And a lot more!
Here are some interesting parts:
9:06: When I invest without traction, and David Sack’s latest startup, Callin.
20:01: How long I take to make a decision to invest
23:11: Why Jason Calacanis’s syndicate is the best one out there
29:07: Fundraising in a tougher environment for startups
34:09: Conspiracy theories on Peloton and Sex and the City’s Mr. Big. 🙂
41:02: Why investors BS you
45:21: How I help the startups I invest in
52:37: Jason’s book Angel and other great books on venture capital and startups
59:00: Why single founders are sometimes ruled out by investors, and why they shouldn’t be.
What information here was most useful to you? What did I miss?

Have a great week!
