Talking FTX, Twitter and Startups at Starta VC

Last week, I had a chance to do one of my favorite things: chat with awesome entrepreneurs!

The venue was Starta VC, an early-stage venture firm based in New York City. Their accelerator brings great entrepreneurs from abroad to the US for an intensive program on building startups, American-style.

These young founders asked some great questions. Some interesting moments:

1:25: Sector-specific investors vs. generalists

2:14: FTX collapse

5:24: How angel syndicates work.

7:13: A trick I stole from Benchmark.

7:53: How I choose startups.

12:41: What’s going on in today’s market.

16:40: The one thing founders should never do.

24:33: Big Tech layoffs.

30:09: How to write cold emails that actually get a response.

33:41: Why AR will beat the metaverse.

42:17: Elon and the Twitter deal.

Thanks to Starta for the invite!
