1/ Back in 2012, @firstround made a bet that the most successful founders of tomorrow are walking the halls of campuses today. @DormRoomFund started as just a small local experiment in Philly, signing the first checks for student entrepreneurs at @DrexelUniv & @Penn.

If you get a text from someone claiming to be me (but from a new phone number) please ignore it. It’s not me.

TFW you feel like you should be one of “the parents” on the @progressive insurance commercial. Watching Tom Cruise ride a motorcycle without a helmet throughout TopGun Maverick — and thinking about how dangerous it is.

1936 - The Institute of Accountants publishes "Examinations of Financial Statements" which introduces the term 'generally accepted accounting principles,' known as GAAP. 2022 - The year people (many founders and VCs) realize that there are other lines on a P&L below the top line

I’ve seen more term sheets pulled in the last month than in the last decade. Just sayin.

One of the hardest startup problems for startup founders to diagnose is a PMF problem masquerading as a GTM problem. I've seen so many founders waste months tearing apart their sales/marketing/pricing/positioning…when they should have been tearing apart their product.

1/ I first heard @AnnieDuke on a podcast, read her book -- and begged her to meet. Now, after 3+ years of working together behind the scenes to refine our decision-making, I'm excited to announce she's @firstround's Special Partner for Decision Science. https://t.co/yBMcLDiU4Q

Could not be more excited to welcome @cjc to @firstround. Cristina is a seasoned company builder and one of the most admired angel investors around. And I know she’ll be an incredible partner, especially for technical founders and builders in the SaaS, fintech & dev tools space! https://t.co/RgbzNsb1jE

Ted has a depth of knowledge and experience -- and the ability to share it with empathy, humor and candor. Any founder would be lucky/privileged to have him as their coach. https://t.co/bGBNP4Oofb

I strongly recommend avoiding taking on more debt (than you can painlessly afford to lose) to purchase speculative common stock. You'll sleep better at night. https://t.co/uUflohGCxj

I owe my career in Venture to a sales gig I took on a whim @stripe. I think the primary jobs in tech are building a product and getting it in the hands of customers. If you're non technical, def consider the sales route :) https://t.co/ctzyHaNwX0

Big news from @benrollert and the @composertrade team! Navigating investments (esp under current market conditions) is overwhelming & time-consuming, but they're changing that. I'm pumped to see the team take their platform to the next level. LFG! 🚀 💰📈https://t.co/RmDOrAdM4G

In tough times a best practice I learned as a CEO that built trust + confidence with board / investors: Get bad news out early. If massively missing qtr or anything critical, don't wait for BoD meeting -- send brief email, describe issue and plan to fix. Easy but rarely done.

One of my biggest fears is if @HarlemCapital doesn’t generate significant returns to LPs (3-5x net), the market will take that as diversity isn’t a strategy There are few of us so it is always a weight we bear as monitories. When the majority fails it doesn’t impact the market

I’ve met some great web3 founders, but Itai & Yoni from @dynamic_xyz stand out. Dynamic is a power tool for web3 devs — an SDK to enable wallet-based login & account management in minutes. We're excited to help them accelerate the adoption of wallet-based auth & identity! https://t.co/FNh3uAg676

New on The Review: There are tons of reads on why company culture matters, but few on how to actually architect it — especially in the earliest days of the startup journey. @ldelbeccaro shares the 3-step framework she's used while building @soradotco: https://t.co/BQXL40E1LT

Great Super Bowl halftime show! But if you enjoyed it as much as I did, you should contact your doctor for a colonoscopy. 😂😂😂

The first deal was driving customers to a marketplace called Half (later acquired by eBay). They sold used DVDs, college textbooks, CDs and video games. I opened a GoTo account (GoTo later became Yahoo Paid Search) and started to drive traffic to Half.
