Arjun Sethi of Tribe Capital on Data-Informed Investing
Arjun Sethi (@Arjunsethi) of Tribe Capital joins Erik on this episode to talk about Tribe Capital’s approach too investing. He talks about the “first principles” approach they take to evaluating companies and why he says rather than the company pitching their firm to Tribe, instead he tells prospective investments, “we will pitch you.” He breaks down the data-driven analysis that Tribe does of the companies they look to work with, and talks about the kinds of data that work best for their analysis. Erik asks why the bigger venture capital firms aren’t taking the same approach and runs through a number of industries to get Arjun’s take on what the keys to success are in that sector. Arjun talks about some of the writing on his blog over the past few years and points out that “any successful company is not successful because they have copied someone else’s framework.” Thanks for listening — if you like what you hear, please review us on your favorite podcast platform.

Arjun Balaji on the Ways Bitcoin Will Improve in 2019 - Ep.054
On the 10th birthday of the Bitcoin network, Arjun Balaji, founder and managing partner at Shomei Capital, explains why doesn't worry too much about potential bugs in the code such as there was last fall, why we'll see improved scalability, privacy and fungibility in the top cryptocurrency in 2019, and why he believes the Lightning Network will foster more developer activity on Bitcoin. He also explains his view that governance tokens and token curated registries will be less popular than they were in 2018 and how such systems further entrench existing power structures. We look at the different waves of crypto funds, how they'll differentiate themselves during the crypto winter, and why we'll see some consolidation in that sector. Plus, he explains why long-term, value from security tokens will be captured by underwriters and why it's unclear who are the right investors for security tokens. Thank you to our sponsor!
