We've now talked to over 100 #climate #startup #founders for @enduring_planet and we're seeing a pattern. A 🧵
(1) First and foremost, there is incredible innovation happening in the space. The pace at which new #climatetech is entering the market and getting validation is staggering. We are truly at the early days of a New Climate Economy. I AM SO EXCITED 🍿🚀
(2) unfortunately, most #founders in #climatetech don't think holistically about the capital they're raising to finance their businesses. The vast majority (over 90%) are going exclusively after VC, without considering non-dilutive options

A lot of people had questions on my last tweet about pre-seed valuations. How does valuation vary in the US? How does it vary across regions? How much are people raising? Let's answer them!
One key point I want to make is that while the market moves up or down, on the whole, there is still a lot of variation! Looking at the graph from last time, you can see that one standard deviation is $4M even within the US market. Image
It’s also key to note that in addition to valuations going up, so is the variation! you can see that in the band around the previous graph and in the distribution in this one Image

El expresidente Mauricio Macri fue entrevistado en @todonoticias este jueves.
El fundador del #PRO y líder de @juntoscambioar, respondió a las preguntas de las oficialistas Luciana Geuna y Maru Duffard.

Qué bien manejó la ironía con las “entrevistadoras”✌🏽🚩Geuna, y la Duffard, la que fue a cubrir el lanzamiento del libro de su Jefa #SinceraMiente y persiguió “al Beto moderado”, en su primera gira por México 🇲🇽

La candidata? ANTONIA 😁

Querida @mariuvidal, piense!
Si querida propiedad privada está en riesgo!
No, no vivís en un termo!
Lo que buscabas quizás, se me ocurre, digo...que por ahí querías que @mauriciomacri te hable del Papá Francisco y mañana “armar una polémica”.

3 questions I was asked at a recent @collisionHQ event:

1. How much revenue do I need before a #VC will commit to invest?
2. How do I demonstrate traction sufficient to get an investor to commit?
3. How can I help the investor understand that this is a “really big opportunity?”
SPOILER: There's no exact formula for this. But these questions did remind me of how @Techstars Chief Investment Officer, Jason @Seats, explains to #startups and #entrepreneurs how to get an investor to say yes. (2/7)
Jason talks about the investor needing to “believe in the inevitability of your success.” They have to picture that this is going to work, with or without them. To get there, they’ll need to have the following mindset about your startup. (3/7)

1/21: It’s not uncommon for a #VC to chat with an early stage #startup and within weeks get introduced to 3-4 other #startups tackling the same opportunity at the same time. When this happens it’s rarely coincidental and definitely worth paying attention to. A thread 👇:
2/21: It’s a generalizable truth that Startups attack market opportunities. Businesses sell products, deliver experiences and solve problems, and Startups attempt to deliver vastly superior products, experiences and solutions to those that currently exist in their markets.
3/21: A Startup is a simple beast at its core. A team is assembled to build a solution to a perceived problem with the goal of distributing and selling it such that economic value accrues to the provider of the solution. (Whew!)

How did the inspiration of @_SocialSX come into fruition?

"A cloud based social media platform to connect people with healthcare providers around the world".

The story 🧵
It all started with 200lbs lost, 11+ surgeries, health issues and community.

I could not find any information on any platform and when I did I had to go get user insights in real time. Having users everyday people be support was 100% better then the provider insight.
So Social SX was created and the community grew taking over the platform for Healthcare resources and information.. and best thing about it?? They NEVER had to leave the group for anything. Everything was in one place at the click of a button.

1/33: So you want to be a top performing #VC investor. Here are six exercises you can practice as you evaluate #startups that will hone your skills, establish frameworks, and help identify great investments.

Read on if you’re interested:
2/33: Exercise 1: Describe the company’s magical experience

After reading a deck or hearing a pitch, can you easily articulate who their perfect customer is and how they’d interact with the company’s product/service in a perfect manner?
3/33: Only after you understand the experience that a company is trying to create can you evaluate it against currently available options. If the new experience is truly magical and differentiated then it might be worth your time.

Lots of ink is spilled parsing differences b/w pre-seed vs seed vs early stage (etc…) investing. But some truths hold across all stages of venture investing! @alexiskold digs in here:… #OpenLP
Truth 1. Venture outcomes are driven by a power law.

Power law is an immutable law of the universe, and that extends to #VC too. Most startups fail, but the biggest winners, when they happen, tend to be huge.

VC’s NEED 🦄’s (and decacorns!) to succeed.
Truth 2. Your Fund Size is Your Strategy

A fund's portfolio construction will depend on how much capital is under management.

This is why funds often specialize at a specific stage of investing (ie. <$50M fund = pre-seed/seed, $150-$300M fund = seed/series A, etc...).

The great debate in #VC “follow-on/pro-rata investing” vs “multiples on dollar invested” continues... #OpenLP -->
.@fintechjunkie wrote a fantastic thread detailing the power of concentrating #vc’s capital into its best companies.
.@dunkhippo33 gave great insights into the power of multiples not ownership for smaller funds.

1/25: It’s been 6-months since I posted a thread about the trend of early stage companies raising of 2-3 back-to-back rounds with minimal progress in-between. I asked some amazing VCs whether or not anything has changed since. They think it’s gotten worse. Their thoughts:
2/25: We still have the conversation with Founders every few weeks if not more often: “How much can you learn how quickly for how much money?” This is even true for first equity rounds which are the bigger problem for us right now. (@iamjakestream)
3/25: The why: Many large VCs are incented to put money to work because in they’re playing an AUM game and need to show their LPs they have access to all the “hot companies”. (@iamjakestream)

#AXXAers a short(ie #shortsqeeze hopefully) #update on one of $AXXA’s #VC companies:
$AXXA Great #zoom call over the weekend w/our #French #VentureCapital Office. We received confirmation of a #USD $250,000 #INVESTMENT into one of our early-stage startups from a reputable international #VC funder.
(let's focusing on #VC before we move to other divisions)
$AXXA Our #French #VC Group will be increasing its stake in this #startup. For confidentiality reasons, we will not disclose the name of the #funder until the second #stage #Funding round is complete.

1/26: It’s hard to produce a 3X+ #VC fund. It’s much harder to do this consistently. Our first 4 funds are mature enough to know where they’ll end up and all of them will handily beat this benchmark. I reviewed our portfolio this morning and jotted down 12 notes. Shared: Image
2/26: Insight 1: It’s more important to be an average investor in a target rich ecosystem than a great investor chasing windmills. It’s been a great decade for #fintech which made our jobs easier.
3/26: The incumbents have been among the most profitable companies in the world and almost every sub-vertical within #fintech was in dire need of modernization. We believe this is still true which is why we’re comfortable with the pond we’ll be fishing in over the next decade.

Because our feed has been blowing up about the injustice of Zebras Unite (uh, that's us) being erased from this article about...uh, us in @TechCrunch we are going to do a thread about what we know and how this happened. tl;dr: Follow the money.…
First off: hello! @marazepeda here. I used to be an economic reporter for places like @planetmoney & @Marketplace. (If credentials are your kink I even graduated at the top of my class from @columbiajourn 🎉) Follow along, friends, as we attempt to unravel this rat's nest.
We get this message: "Uh, WTF there is an article about Zebras without mentioning Zebras." This happens more often than you might think. (What's the best is when men tweak your ideas and then put another name on it like camel and publish in @HarvardBiz)…

1/11 - 2020 has seen an acceleration of fintech adoption. As we wrap up the year, I wanted to share some thoughts regarding our ventures strategy in #fintech @mubadala 👇🏼
2/11 ANT (public or not) has elicited a digital payments revolution in China, with no turning back (70% of the Chinese population currently uses one of more ANT’s services). We believe this trend towards digital payments will keep expanding into other geographies as well.
3/11 Like most industries, finance is undergoing a digital revolution. This is driven by changing attitudes and higher consumer expectations for financial institutions, coupled with rapid technological advancement extending the reach of financial services.

Today, I am sharing a simple tactic, which brought me more than 1,933 (and counting) extra visitors and sales to a new project over the weekend.

And you can do better!

Building side projects has become a habit, and I learned so much.

I have been the Head of #Growth for some time, and people usually assume I can quickly turn a company from an idea into a unicorn in no time.

The hard truth is not.
It really took me 7 years to get here. Sometimes I feel frustrated because I can't perform some tricks in my day job.

But #sideproject filled this gap and allow me to build, test, develop, and solve any problems I want to. #nocode
