Thread on the backgound of Diane Culligan, who claimed in May to control a bizarre breakaway club from #MillwallLionesses & husband Anthony, a former shirt sponsor's owner (which recently declared Insolvency at the High Court).

An off-site page of this thread unrolls at its end.

I will now proceed to go on a #tweetrant / #tweetorial with regards to #Pharmaceutical #biotech pricing (focus on #cancer).

Very timely, also see @WSJ wsj.com/articles/big-p… on price hikes.

For the record, no #COI / #FCOI. Feel free to contribute to this discussion.
Lets look at the problem from the @PhRMA / business perspective. And lets suppose you are a wonderful company, started by wonderful people who just want to make the world a better place (I know, not real, but stay with me for a minute).
You start with a great idea / or pipeline platform and start selling this concept to #VC #VentureCapital, and lets assume that this is actually a really good idea. What is the needed return on investment to make this worth while. A: further R&D must exceed the cost of capital.

@firstround publishes a yearly #startups survey and the results are in - hugely useful data for all founders of all genders. But we have some thoughts when you look a little closer... stateofstartups.firstround.com/2018/
1. Only 17% of respondents were women, and results are not broken up by gender. So it calls into question finding #1, that most founders believe AGE is the #1 investor bias in tech.
1a. Obviously, if 83% of respondents are men, and never personally experience gender bias, this finding is massively biased itself.

[THREAD] In chapter 4, we discuss how to solve for #HumanCapital challenges in #VC. So if we haven’t found a strong argument why we shouldn't try & build a fund from scratch as there appears no structural barrier to entry that cannot be overcome — how do we therefore do this?
1.) Where to look first?

The churn in top tier performance is drastically increasing as the VC market matures & #Alpha is dispersed due to the inherent inefficiencies. Only the best funds plan for succession.
2.) Ultimately, VCs firms are small partnerships. Behavioural challenges in #InvestmentPartnerships include:

•Economic Allocation
•Shared Decision Making
•Diffused Responsibility
•Personal Risk Minimisation
•Go-along-to-get-along Interaction

1. Los inversores de #venturecapital piden a los founders de la #startup una serie de derechos y protecciones a incluir en el pacto de socios. Hoy empezaremos con un clásico: el liquidation preference (LP) 👇 (hilo):
2. Todos sabemos lo que significa: el derecho que tienen las participaciones preferentes (preferred stock) a cobrar antes que las participaciones ordinarias (common stock), en caso de venta o liquidación de la compañía
3. Normalmente los clasificamos mediante un número seguido de una “x”, que significa el número de veces que las participaciones preferentes recuperan su inversión. 1x = una vez la inversión; 2x = 2 veces la inversión...

[THREAD] As a systematic public market investor, #VentureCapital was an asset class that felt opaque to me based on only my limited exposure of #AngelInvesting & my friends in the industry. In this article, I set the context for Unpacking Alpha in Venture Capital.
1.) It is a challenging asset class to digest & I am sure a majority of large institutional pools of capital would struggle to list more than a handful of brand name VC firms or investors.
2.) That said, top decile returns in VC are extremely impressive so I decided to take a deeper look with a view to create an ecology map & building an institutional footprint from first principles.

3: Build superior traction.
4: Raise higher resources.

5: Create/acquire the newer products.
6: Continue growth momentum by putting those new products through the distribution pipes already created.
7: Grow to monstrous size.
