Venture Deals 3rd Edition Available via Kindle Matchbook

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 15:58:32 +0000

If you have purchased the hardcopy edition of Venture Deals 3rd Edition, you can now buy the Kindle version also for $2.99 via the Amazon Kindle Matchbook program. Jason and I have been asking our publisher (Wiley) for this for a while and we are psyched they’ve agreed to it. It came about after a...

Relationships Are 100/100, Not 50/50

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 14:56:08 +0000

In a vox with my partner Seth recently, he said something that stuck with me. “Relationships are 100/100, not 50/50.” He was referring to a business dynamic between two people, but it applies to any relationship and any number of people. It’s a simple idea, but a great one. When I consider my relationship with...

Through the Looking Glass

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 13:48:47 +0000

He took his vorpal sword in hand: Long time the manxome foe he sought — So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood awhile in thought. – from Lewis Carroll, Jabberwocky Jabberwocky and the vorpal sword always makes me think of Princess Leia saying “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi you’re my only hope.” One, two!...

Back From Vacation

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 16:05:37 +0000

Amy and I just took a two-week vacation. We were mostly off the grid, to the extent we could be given several things we were working on together. We hid from the world, caught our breath, and regrouped. I often get asked what my rhythm is on a vacation like this. It’s simple – I...

The Magic of Dealing With Your Demons

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 16:42:53 +0000

Jessi Hempel from Backchannel just wrote an amazing profile piece on my close friend Jerry Colonna. It’s titled This Man Makes Founders Cry. Medium estimates that it’s an 18 minute read and I assert that it’s worth every minute. I’ve known and worked with Jerry since 1996. I now get to call him my neighbor as he...

Immigration Fundraiser: For Here or To Go

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 20:54:30 +0000

A little over a year ago I wrote a post about a feature film Amy and I were helping fund called For Here or To Go. The movie is about a set of Indian software developers in the US on H1-B visas. The main character wanted to start a company, or join a startup, but couldn’t make either...

Don’t Play Hurt

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 15:15:09 +0000

I heard a great line from a CEO recently: “I don’t want to play hurt.” I loved that line. In my world, some companies beat their Q416 numbers. Others made their Q416 numbers. Some missed their Q416 numbers. That’s life. Any VC who says otherwise (e.g. “All my companies are killing it”) is either full...

Film: American Muslim Storytellers

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 19:51:06 +0000

Over the weekend, our Monthly Match for the National Immigration Law Center raised over $47,000,. For everyone who contributed, thank you! In the emails I got, one stood out. It pointed me at an Indiegogo campaign for a documentary done by American Muslim Storytellers. The timing of the email was particularly good as I had...

Bias Documentary

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 14:15:41 +0000

One of the philanthropic activities that Amy and I have been doing is helping fund documentaries around issues that we care about. A breakout documentary from 2015 was CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap. We got to know Robin Hauser, the director and producer, through the process and thought she was awesome. When she told us...
