1/ A quick primer on #SPVs

First an #SPV in the VC context simply means an entity setup to provide financing to startups or to acquire secondary shares in pre-IPO companies.

SPV #structures:
-LLC (common)
-Series LLC: Alumni Ventures Group
-Series LP: Assure/AngelList/etc
2/ Traditionally, #SPVs (special purpose vehicles) were used for structured financing transactions. These entities blew up in the 2009 financial crisis.

Today, it's very common to see SPVs on a Silicon Valley startup cap table. For example, in @Uber's #IPO there were 100+ SPVs.
3/ Founders & employees are more active as operator angel investors. The broad swath of Silicon Valley CEOs invest. As a bridge between solo angel investor & full time GP, SPVs close that gap. They offer a chance for future GPs to test the waters. See @jmj @briannekimmel, et al.

I have a 'wall-of-shame' built in an agonising manner over 25Y.

Those who know me personally or been with me here, have seen the tweets tagged as #uv_lessons which are basically my own bruises and cuts.

'Why I Failed' thread on this experience should help us all (me included).
#IPO craze of mid-90s made me experience the 80:20 rule

> 80% IPOs were 'lipstick on the pig' (bad businesses, numbers were window dressed)🚨
< 20% IPOs were good businesses at a fair price (#HDFCBank)

Sold good ones to "book profit", but kept hugging the junk ones #uv_lessons
Been tracking this biz for long, and fully exited in 2017 (purely valuation call in a volatile space); re-entered last year after 66% drop, as risk/reward was favourable; stock slipped another 15% and I added some more! (my thesis: same biz getting cheaper and I had cash).
