Le projet @bluesky, futur « @Twitter décentralisé » (initialement issu de Twitter en 2019, aujourd'hui indépendant), utilisera de multiples techno imbriquées (…) dont :

- La « Self Sovereign Identity (#SSI) » soit les #DID et les #VC (cf. 6/6),
- Les « federated or #p2p network »,
- Bien sûr les « #blockchain networks »,
- Et enfin d'autres briques technologiques plus classiques du Web 2.0.
3/6 Si « everything is still fully experimental » 🚨, la #SSI y jouera un rôle central🌟: « bluesky could be described as ahybrid federated network with p2p characteristics, but it’s more descriptive to focus on self-authenticating identities and data than on network topology »

Les stratégies d'investissement du VC Paradigm et les projets à surveiller ! [Thread]

Aujourd'hui, Thread rédigé par @papy_sol sur Paradigm, un des plus gros fond qui investit en crypto pour la #knowledgeweek2 ; avec présentation de chaque projet.

Allez le follow, il mérite !
Paradigm se positionne actuellement dans le top 3 des plus gros fonds capital-risque crypto avec 2,5 milliards $ sous gestion. Il a été crée récemment par un monstre de l’écosystème, Fred Ehrsam, le cofondateur de Coinbase et ancien trader chez Goldman Sachs.
On peut se demander s’il n’y a pas mieux placer que lui pour anticiper l’avenir de la blockchain, d’autant plus qu’il s’est entouré de gros cerveaux pour chercher les futures pépites de la crypto. Le but de ce thread sera d’analyser la composition du portefeuille de Paradigm.

So far, 2022 is off to a rocky start. Fears of inflation and signals that the rate environment is about to shift have driven the markets down with high growth tech stocks leading the charge.

What does this mean for #VC backed private companies? A few thoughts:
Answering this question is easier if put in the context of a valuation framework.

My simple framework:

A business is “worth” a combination of the intrinsic value of what it can produce and the option value of what it might be able to produce in the future.
Intrinsic Value

Once a company has learned how to turn a dollar of investment into a multiple of the dollar in the future it’s earned the right to be called a money-making machine. Until then, it might have salvage value, but true enterprise value is questionable.

This makes me so 🤢

The idea that women are automatically “safe” is exactly what creates this “opportunity” for some women to exploit children & monetize their “optics” of “trustworthy” on behalf of predators.

Gender does not predict ethics, integrity, safety.
Why does #GhislaineMaxwellTrial matter to #womeninSTEM?
⬇️federal funding
➡️private donors (Epstein)

“Socialites” open doors to elite spaces, including #academia #science #STEM
Women=“optics” & “reputation management” for these wealthy predator men…
These same connected women, often daughters of powerful businessmen

are on boards of #WomeninSTEM “empowerment” organizations or on #MeToo (TimesUp scandal)

the very women who are predators of young women are given access to women’s “safe spaces”? (!!!)…

Founders: Uncertainty is expensive. Build a plan for your journey to Unicorn Land that focuses on increasing your probability of success - solving for unknowns and demonstrating capability.

Let's dig in

#startups #Entrepreneurship #VC
IMO, a good plan consists of 3 pieces - your path, people, and proof. Each piece should be designed to maximize the probability that your journey will be successful. Here is a picture that 1) is amazing 2) tells you everything you need to know. But in case you're a words person.. Image
A good path consists of a combination of product/customer segment/distribution model that is specifically tailored to the problem you are solving.

A good path also contains milestones that balance value and achievability.

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

It’s September - time for the annual run to raise/close out #VC funds before the end of the year. For many #GPs - this means reaching out to an LP who passed on a previous fund.
This thread deep dives into what to keep in mind as you circle back and reach out to #LPs that passed in the past (which I *do* recommend doing btw)👇

(Note: Drawing inspiration from this wonderful thread by @dunkhippo33 on a similar dynamic when entrepreneurs are turned down by #VCs:)

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

Everyone is talking about higher valuations in VC in 2021. At @HustleFundVC, we looked at over 3k US Pre-seed deals to better understand if it's true and what's behind it. Let's Go! #VC #startups
Well, it's true (I know, anticlimactic). Valuations are up 55% from pandemic lows (I'm using a 4-week moving average, so the drop and rebound are a little delayed). Image
What's driving this? Comprehensive increase in valuations. The distribution of valuations has shifted to the right of $10m. However, 10m+ valuations are still the minority of deals we see. Image

این عنوان مقاله و تحقیقی هست که با همکاری دانشگاه هایی مثل هاروارد و استنفورد و همچنین انجمن VC های آمریکا به بررسی 900 سرمایه گذار خطر پذیر پرداخته.
از جهاتی این کامل ترین تحقیقی هست که تا امروز در مورد VC ها شده 1/15
سوال اول این هست که چرا اساسا دانستن روش تصمیم گیری VC ها مهم هست؟در سال 2015 (زمان شروع پروژه)، 20% ارزش شرکت های سهامی عام و 44% بودجه R&D شرکت ها توسط این گروه تامین شده.پس VCتاثیر مهمی در فضای کلی کسب و کار دارند (طبیعتا در آمریکا) 2/15
اولین موضوع پژوهش این بوده که VC ها چطور سرمایه پذیرها را پیدا می کنند؟تقریبا 90% مواقع اونها شرکت/فرد/موضوع سرمایه گذاری را از شبکه دوستان/همکاران پیدا می کنند.(30%همکاران سابق،20%معرفی همکاران،8%معرفی سرمایه پذیرهای قبلی)3/15

#Arg 🇦🇷
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.
