How Do VCs Decide Which Tech Companies to Back?

Suranga Chandratillake

"First of all, we have to know that your company exists.  All venture capitalists obsess over what is commonly known as ‘deal flow’ and, in particular, the elusive ‘proprietary deal flow’. This is just MBA-speak for ‘knowing about amazing companies that no one else knows about’."

Losing Money

Fred Wilson

"My point on sharing all of this with you is to explain that losing money is part of being an investor. It happens."

The Fourth Facebook Gold Rush Just Started

Chris Dixon

"When Facebook makes something a priority, there is a huge opportunity for fast moving, nimble, technical and hacker minded startups who can work fast enough to deconstruct the algorithms that determine what gets placed in the feed and optimize for that."

Better Feedback as a Remote Team

Kate Kendall

"We’ve set up a round-robin schedule where each person schedules two calls per month with two different team members. That way, we have a dedicated time to catch up with another member of the team who you might not otherwise chat with outside of daily work tasks."
