Reflections on Bored Meetings

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 14:55:30 +0000

Over the past 25 years, I’ve attended approximately 14,387 board meetings. My partners and I talk a lot about how to improve them and today released The Foundry Group Manifesto on Board Meetings. It follows: In 2013, I wrote a book with Mahendra Ramsinghani about board meetings titled Startup Boards: Getting the Most Out of Your Board of...

It Can All Go To Zero

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 17:31:12 +0000

Perspective can be a useful thing. Cryptocurrencies have had a bad 24 hours. Last night Amy and I watched The Big Short for the second time. If you’ve never seen it, it’s a must watch movie. If you haven’t seen it in at least a year, watch it again. While the events are from 2005...

Colorado Startup Summer

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 17:55:59 +0000

Every entrepreneur starts her journey somewhere. Colorado is a premier location for entrepreneurs and innovative thinkers. This is why I co-founded and commit a portion of my time to Startup Colorado; an organization that empowers and sustains startup communities across Colorado. One of the programs that Startup Colorado runs – called Startup Summer – cultivates and...

Worst of Times

Fri, 12 Jan 2018 18:38:50 +0000

If you enjoyed I’m a VC, take another walk down memory lane with me back to 2015 and watch our second video, Worst of Times. More soon. Hint, hint …

I’m A VC

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 15:33:30 +0000

As a preparation for something new and exciting, let’s reminisce a little. In 2011, we did our first Foundry Group music video “I’m a VC.” I remember being amazed when the Youtube views went over 100,000. I recall being equally amazed when I heard that our IT guy (Ryan) had cleaned up our random Google...

Welcome Jamey Sperans To Foundry Group

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 17:35:17 +0000

My partners and I just announced that our long-time friend and LP – Jamey Sperans – has joined Foundry Group. We’ve been working with Jamey since the beginning of Foundry Group in 2007 (he was one of our first LPs via Morgan Stanley AIP) and have become extremely close friends. Jamey and his family have...

Supporting Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund

Tue, 09 Jan 2018 16:04:57 +0000

Yesterday, my partners at Foundry Group announced financial support for the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund. We strongly believe that sexual harassment is unacceptable in any form. While there can be a debate about whether sexual harassment is about sex, power, or something else, there’s an additional pernicious element of it when the harasser threatens...

@bfeld User Manual: Business Dinners

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 17:18:56 +0000

I love the idea of A User Manual To Working With Me. A number of the CEOs we work with have written them and Seth sends out a letter to all new founders about working with us. While I occasionally think about writing an @bfeld User Manual, I never manage to get around to it....

My Perfect Saturday of Fire and Fury

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 20:32:33 +0000

Yesterday was a perfect Saturday. I decided to do a digital sabbath so on Friday night at 5 pm I shut down my computer. Amy made a nice small dinner of leftover cauliflower soup with farfalle pasta. We then went downstairs and finished off the Burns/Novick The Vietnam War. I woke up mid-morning on Saturday. I...

Optimism In The Face Of Current Reality

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 17:41:33 +0000

Let’s start with an awesome dog taking himself sledding. Now, let’s move on to Bill Gates opening essay in this week’s Time Magazine (he’s their first ever guest editor) titled Some good news, for once. It’s short and powerful. He starts out with context. “Reading the news today does not exactly leave you feeling optimistic. Hurricanes...
