Here’s a good video with Brad Feld of The Foundry Group talking about raising early-stage funding. While generally interesting, it’s also of specific interest to those who would like to understand how the Foundry Group thinks about their “thematic” investment approach. Brad describes how their defined themes are the primary filter, and the team is the secondary filter.
After having just spent some time on vacation in the same great spots as Brad, I had to quickly readjust to “business Brad” when I first watched this. It was a little like coming out of the twilight zone, I would imagine. Could this really be the same guy you see below?
Sorry Brad, had to do it.
