I think selling is the hardest part of investing. Buying is, of course, critical to generating strong investment performance. Figuring out what to buy and when to buy it is what most people think of when they think of investing. But your returns will have as much to do with selling as buying. And buying […]

Care and Feeding

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 13:41:57 +0000

Young companies are a bit like children. They require care and feeding. The feeding part comes naturally to investors. Because that is what we do. We invest capital into young companies in hope of generating large returns on those investments. The caring part comes harder to investors. At least it did to this investor. But […]

The Hard Raise

In the summer of 2003, Brad Burnham and I set out to raise a $100mm early stage venture capital fund. We had both been successful VCs in other firms and we had a thesis that the second wave of the Internet was upon us and that large networks were going to get built in this […]

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 10:45:30 +0000

USV is a revolving door when it comes to our analyst program. We hire the smartest young people we can find (Jennifer and Jacqueline are our newest hires) and ask them to spend two years with us learning the VC business and helping us make and manage our investments. Then we ask them to move on […]

Jonathan Libov has spent a couple years at USV in our two year analyst program and is about to move on to his next thing. He took the time this week to write down some thoughts on what he has learned as a “junior VC” and it’s worth reading for both investors and entrepreneurs. I […]

Understanding VCs

I saw Joe Fernandez‘ tweet a few days ago and thought “he is making an important point.” too many young entrepreneurs talk about vc’s like they’re heroes and their blog posts are scripture — Joe Fernandez (@JoeFernandez) August 19, 2016 VCs are not heroes. We are just one part of the startup ecosystem. We provide […]

Gold, Silver, and Bronze

Winning a medal at the Olympics is a big deal for athletes all around the world. Obviously a gold medal is better but silver and bronze are pretty awesome too. In startup land, it works out pretty similarly. In each and every big “winner takes most” market there is one big winner (the gold medal […]
