Do You Reduce Stress Or Increase Stress?

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 17:20:29 +0000

Mark Cuban had a great line a few weeks ago at the interview I did with him and Charlie Ergen at Denver Startup Week. He said: “I like to invest in people who reduce stress and avoid people who increase stress.” As I was dealing with something yesterday, this reappeared in my brain but slightly...

Backing Up Your Stem Cells

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 16:25:53 +0000

The science fiction of the last 30 years is rapidly becoming reality as technologies such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence are becoming more real and present with each passing day. While my jetpack still seems ponderously far away and cars are becoming self-driving instead of flying, we are making progress. In medicine, progress is...

Zebras Uniting at DazzleCon

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 16:01:06 +0000

Yesterday, I wrote about the upcoming CO Impact Days. In it, I pointed to a Medium post titled Zebras Fix What Unicorns Break, which turns out to be the Zebra Manifesto. Per the manifesto, a Zebra (unlike Unicorns) are real: Zebra companies are both black and white: they are profitable and improve society. They won’t...

CO Impact Days: Unicorns, Zebras, Ponies, and Donkeys

Sat, 11 Nov 2017 19:39:17 +0000

VCs love to talk about Unicorns, where a giant return is possible. Some friends in the impact investing world have recently started talking about generating giant returns by investing in Zebras (such as a nonprofit building in rural Colorado) and Ponies (an immigrant restaurant in Seattle currently using payday lending at 35% for their working...

Techstars and The Nature Conservancy

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 20:06:52 +0000

The Nature Conservancy and Techstars just announced a partnership to create the Techstars Sustainability Accelerator. Amy and I were part of the public announcement this week in Denver.

The third edition of Venture Deals is now available on Audible. It’s the unabridged version read by me and my partner/co-author Jason Mendelson with guest appearances by Matt Blumberg. We’ve been getting requests for an unabridged audio version of Venture Deals since we first came out with the book in 2012. We like to think...

Draft of Cat Hoke’s Upcoming Book – Second Chance

Sat, 28 Oct 2017 18:48:15 +0000

I just finished the near-final draft of Cat Hoke’s upcoming book Second Chance. It is incredibly powerful on multiple levels. I’ve gotten to know Cat reasonably well over the past year. I first heard of her through the Techstars Foundation, where we gave her organization – Defy Ventures – one of our very first grants. I...

Foundry Group Is Looking For A General Counsel

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 12:45:02 +0000

We announced yesterday that we are looking for a general counsel for Foundry Group. While Jason has proclaimed himself a recovering lawyer for some time now, in reality, he’s been doing the high-level legal work for us since we started Foundry Group. He also runs our fund operations and is a full-time venture capitalist, so...
