Doing The Heavy Lifting

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 08:00:23 +0000

Most venture capital investments are made, over time, by syndicates. This means a group of venture capital firms develops around a company, usually built over multiples rounds. Some of the firms in the syndicate agree to (or require) having a partner from their firm join the Board of the company. If you look at the […]

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 04:29:11 +0000

It’s a travel day for me. We are flying back home today after four weeks away. William told me to watch this video about ICOs and Token Sales. So I will do that on the flight home. Maybe you all might like to watch it too.

So you are Phil Jackson and you’ve got the eighth pick in yesterday’s NBA Draft.  You want a guard who can be a franchise player for the Knicks. You can take Malik Monk, Dennis Smith Jr, or Frank Ntilikina. Who do you pick? I don’t know much about Frank Ntilikina. I sure hope he lives […]

Thirty Years

Thirty years ago today the Gotham Gal and I were married. It was a very warm and humid day in the Washington DC area and the skies opened up and poured during the wedding ceremony which was happily inside. After that, the humidity cleared and the sun came out and it turned into a beautiful […]

The Gotham Gal and I have been coming to Paris for close to thirty years. We started coming with our family a little more than fifteen years ago and spent one summer here as a family about ten years ago. We bought an apartment here around five years ago and we try to be here […]

Should Your Company Be Profitable?

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 05:36:43 +0000

Mark Suster just put up a long post on this topic. His message is “it depends” and he explains the rationale for investing in growth vs getting profitable. I have come to think about this differently. If you are bootstrapping your company without the help of outside investment (ie angels, VCs, etc), then you have […]
