Happy New Year

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 09:50:31 +0000

Today is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. I’d like to wish a happy new year to all my Jewish friends and colleagues and readers. I don’t personally identify as any particular religion.

Mexico City is an amazing place. The Gotham Gal and I were there around this time last year. The people, the culture, the energy are all great in Mexico City.

I remember when I was in my early 20s and just starting out in the venture capital business, I came across an old wall street saying that “a market climbs a wall of worry.” I didn’t understand it and that made me want to. I read a bit about the saying and came to understand […]



Some Thoughts On Burn Rates

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 11:11:56 +0000

The startup and venture capital businesses are based on a general idea that you can and should invest heavily into your business in order to increase value creation, amplify it, and accelerate it. These investments mostly take the form of operating losses, driven by headcount, where the monthly expenses are larger, often much larger, than […]
