Open Source Funding Documents

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 07:35:41 +0000

Cooley, one of the top startup law firms, has open sourced the legal documents required to do a Series Seed or Convertible Note financing. They are available on Cooley’s CooleyGo document generation platform and also on GitHub. Kudos to Cooley for doing this. We need to make the transaction costs of getting a financing done […]

This is a few weeks old, but I finally got around to watching it. Mary always does a nice job of summarizing the latest trends.



ICOs and VCs

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 06:06:43 +0000

The Brave browser team concluded an ICO for their Basic Attention Token yesterday in about thirty seconds. This led to this tweet: The Basic Attention Token (BAT) ICO just raised 30 million dollars in 24 seconds.

Yesterday, I did a fireside chat with my friend David Kirkpatrick at his Techonomy Conference in NYC. On my way out, a Bloomberg camera crew asked me if I would talk with Emily Chang and I did, for about ten minutes. It aired yesterday evening. Here it is:



Seeing Through The Fog

Sun, 07 May 2017 10:22:16 +0000

I was talking to my friend Simon yesterday and he observed that the essential skill of entrepreneurs and early stage VCs is to “be able to see through the fog of an emerging market and pick out the winning idea.” And of course, I agree with that. It is something that we have done pretty […]



Being Public

Wed, 03 May 2017 10:23:03 +0000

Two former USV portfolio companies had tough earnings calls last night. And you look at that and you might say “why would any company want to go public?” But here is the thing. Being public is about being transparent, accountable, and owning up to the issues and dealing with them. I think it makes companies […]



Investor VCs and Operator VCs

Mon, 01 May 2017 09:45:12 +0000

The Venture Capital business is full of great firms that were founded by entrepreneurs/operators who became investors mid/late career. From Gene Kleiner and Tom Perkins in the early 70s to Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz at the end of the 00s, this is the iconic model of the venture capital firm and the formula that […]



My Talk At MIT

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 10:51:38 +0000

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was going to give the first annual Georges Doriot Lecture at MIT. I traveled up to MIT on April 13th and gave this talk. I really enjoyed doing it and I want to thank MIT for doing it.



Starting Is Easy, Finishing Is Hard

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 10:22:22 +0000

Starting a company has gotten much easier over the past decade. The capital requirements to get started have come way down in both software and hardware businesses. The supply of seed and venture capital has increased dramatically as well. And there are all sorts of programs aimed at helping entrepreneurs get started. All of this […]
