Themes, Thoughts and Conversations
We've rounded up blogs, podcasts and research from our team on industry trends, markets, companies and conversations with great founders and leaders.
We know we are taking a myriad of risks when we make an early-stage investment, we hope to be as clear-eyed as we can on “what we have to believe” for a business to be successful. Once we get conviction around an opportunity, our job is to be ‘all in’ with the founders in helping turn the “what if this works” into a reality.
Yes, there is a business to run but operating with a human-first mindset is aligned with achieving business results. When people feel seen, heard and cared for, they are motivated to do their best work and feel the safety needed to take the risks required to innovate. It engenders a loyalty to each other and the brand that makes coming to work fun and gives the team the resilience needed to weather the storms inherent in building a meaningful business.
