SoCal CTO

Match Performance Support

SoCal CTO

I’ve had several recent conversations with startups who are building companies based on matching.

Feld Thoughts

People Matching

Rob Go

When entrepreneurs think about approaching VC’s to cultivate a relationship for a round, they often try to match their company with what the VC has funded in the past. So, I think it’s sometimes tough to pattern-match based on sectors. But I do think it’s pretty successful to pattern-match based on founders. So if you’re doing you are thinking about how to best approach investors, don’t automatically just pattern-match based on sectors.

Dear VCs: What Happens When Your Words And Your Actions Don’t Match

But then their words and their actions don’t match up.
