[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.

1/ I recently spoke to @AccelepriseSF’s 9th cohort. Topic turned to how to approach #angelinvestors for #seedrounds. I shared some of these thoughts with @TomTaulli on @Forbes, forbes.com/sites/tomtaull…
but let me expand...
2/ According to @ACAAngelCapital, every year +200k angels invest +25 billion in +71k startup deals! This has changed 3 big things: 1. how formal VC firms operate 2. Silicon Valley’s stranglehold on talent 3. How founders raise funds. Let me explain.
3/ Let’s start with VCs. Initially wary of angels as competitors, they realized that letting angels take the initial bets actually helps reduce risk, letting them focus their own bets. Win.

Does AUSA Moira Kim Penza, prosecutor in the fed. #NXIVM #RICO criminal racketeering case, realize that her indictments of #NXIVM leader, Keith Raniere aka "Vanguard," last March, may have affected the outcome of the 2018 Mexican Presidential Election? #ArizonaMafia #Democrats
Moira Kim Penza is 1 of the main prosecutors in the federal #NXIVM #RICO criminal case. A #RICO case is very serious; it is 1 of the most complex types of prosecutions the U.S. Government can initiate. Moira's boss is Richard P. Donoghue, U.S. Atty for the Eastern District of NY.
Penza is a smart lawyer. According to publicly available information, she studied at Cornell Law School, a private Ivy League University located in Ithaca, New York. Cornell was ranked the #13 law school in America, out of 203 law schools, by U.S. News & World Report, in 2018.

1) The Queen of #DARPA

From last night's amazing events on #Q research boards, a familiar name re-emerged: Regina Dugan.

19th Director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). In March 2012, she left for #Google.

#QAnon #QArmy #WWG1WGA #TheStormIsHere @POTUS
2) There, she led the Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group at Motorola Mobility (Google owned) and worked on Skip...

"exploring digital tattoos and pills"

Kinda odd?

#redpill #Crumbs #WakeUp #MakeItRain #Corruption #QAnon #AprilShowers
3) While at #Google, she also worked on Tango.

This woman sure is interested in tracking you, isn't she?

#QAnon #JaredCohen led Google in donating $3 million to create a database system to connect 65 independent hotlines used to report human trafficking.
#QAnon #Clinton #IranIsNext "Clinton protected Cohen" when Obama asked why he wasn't fired? Who is the good guy in this?
Well.....not sure these are two I would want supporting me:
"Cohen and Schmidt’s book, The New Digital Age, appeared in 2013, with glowing blurbs from Henry Kissinger and Madeleine Albright. "

Plusieurs entreprises de la tech prennent cher dans le nouveau générique de "Silicon Valley" saison 5. En premier, Facebook, dont le logo est brièvement remplacé par de l'écriture cyrillique (wink wink Russie wink)
Les gens quittent Uber pour aller chez Lyft (qui sont à présent représentés par des gros bâtiments et non plus des montgolfières) #SiliconValley
Le bâtiment de "Juicero" est à peine construit qu'il est déjà abandonné (pour rappel de la folle histoire de cette startup qui vendait 400€ une machine pour presser des "sacs" de jus qu'on pouvait en fait presser à la main: lefigaro.fr/secteur/high-t…)

1) Today's story is called The Brink.

They never thought she'd lose, now we understand the #NWO plan to destroy America, see 1991 Bush I vid. Obama took over the process from Bush II and embarked on an 8 year wrecking ball. #QAnon #GreatAwakening @POTUS
2) For years rogue operatives have been getting installed. Shadow government/#DeepState. All centers of #Government. Controlled by the wealthiest on the planet, most rogue was the CIA. Goal was complete control to dismantle. Check Out Barry's Book: Post American World #QAnon
3) The systematic leaking of classified intel was everywhere, so was exposure of #military assets. Instead if de-funding military (bad optics), you starve thru corruption. Notice #Mattis has a massive audit of DOD? Think why.

1. Time to logically interact (a) Obama and Hillary using fake intel to get Silicon Valley (SV) to suppress their political enemies, and (b) the increasingly obvious divergence between the #VeryFakeNews media and #RedPillReality, because it leads to a critical idea: #FakeFuture
2. I would like to thank a variety of dead and imaginary teachers, from Pythagoras to Hugh Everett to Robert Langdon (*WINK*), for their persistent needling about this topic.
3. Let's begin by asking ourselves what it means that #Hollywood, the #FakeNewsMedia, and #SiliconValley all seem to be talking to themselves and not us.

What does #CoyBoyBezos do with his fortune?
2) Before buyin#WaPo & a house down the street from #DeepStateHQ to host Subject-Specific Cocktail Parties, the #DARPA #CoyBoy Didn't Always Flaunt His Coin.

For nearly Two Decades He Flew Below the Radar.
3) Things Took a Turn.

In exchange for State Tax Incentives, He Conceded State Sale Tax, & Focused on Government Contracts, Spreading His Tentacles & Forging Political Alliances Nationwide.
