"twenty" Discussed on The Twenty Minute VC

"And proud to welcome doug. Leoni global managing partner sequoia capital. You have now arrived at your destination. Doug this is such an honest. I mean it's a fall from breakfast through the. But i can't thank you enough for joining me. Stay said really appreciate you taking the time. It's my pleasure and honor to be here. I would love to start say. They wouldn't incredible thirty. Three johnny was sequoia. But i did my research before this and practice guide to venture capital five. Pm meeting with dome ballantyne. How did you get it. And how did the meeting wanted. Don't ask well. Some of the training for that. Cold call came from a sales days. And when you sold computers back in the late seventies had to get past what was then called the secretary to get to someone who might have a budget and so it was really no different and the lady who answered the phone. She was not a secretary. I did not know that she was the right hand. Person don valentine. She was shrewd tough great sense of humor a new yorker who would not be bullshitted if you will by anybody. We started the call. I quickly sense what she was. And we add an honest and real conversation firm conversation between two people who spent a lotta time in new york and we hit it off. And i was told afterwards that she walked into don's office and she said this kid may have something you might want to interview. And that's what led to my five. Pm monday meeting. With don valentine and tell me added the meeting go. Would it don't ask. It was a tough meeting. Donna had a little round table at the corner of his office. Don was the kind of person that silence would not bother him in other words. If you answered a question he could sit there for thirty seconds in dead quiet in his heart rate probably wouldn't increase. What yours probably doubled and so we asked me one question. What's important and i rambled for maybe four five minutes and now it was followed by debt science. It felt like an hour. Sure was twenty seconds and then he said to me. What else in that started laughing at. I said what else i gave you everything i have. And then we warmed up from that point on. And i think what don noticed that he had someone who was a missile back then at saying unguided type of missile but someone who had the courage the humor and from his point of view who looked at business from the customer in not from the technology out and he liked that as a compliment to some of the people who have the looked everything from the checkout in which is why i was loved that question because i just got off a cool with david at nea. Buying and i said to him. Hey doug coming on the show. Why should i ask him and he said doug is the most questions scott when he interviews people lost dog. What question does he ask. So what are you ask in. This aims dumb. Things have changed because the type of questions you can. Now ask a very different than the types of questions you can once ask. But i have some favorites i and i said i don't want to get too personal but i asked him if they have a sibling close in age and then i ask them. Used three adjectives to describe your sibling. I make it very clear. This is not about their sibling. Into the scribe themselves by compares. And so you know. In a law of diversity to siblings are less likely to be alike to strange and so how they describe their siblings usually opposite on how they describe themselves. It's a self-awareness questions. So on so. I always like that i like to ask. What are the things that you've always done well because of genetics because of early upbringing and the things you struggle with that you have head to improve on because you are smart person and you're tired of making the same errors over and over. I really try to get into not the professional equality of the individual but more of the personal quality. It takes about thirty minutes with someone to relax which is why refused to interview someone but thirty minutes after thirty minutes than i ask a little more about business the key drivers of a company to them why they did certain things and so on but i focused very much on the why and a lot less than what mention sibling rationale habits. Don't too personal but you set before about being an only child and about your parents growing up in seeing your father. Y- doing his profession. And i think he said at the peak. He made twenty five grand while he incredibly hard. I was intrigued. what were your biggest takeaway from seeing. The work ethic of your parents knew that they did for you in those early days. Having that save those takeaways fee. Lots of great lessons first of all it taught you the simplicity of everyday life. And what's really important. It also taught you how to live within your means if your dad or your mom is making twenty five grand and you'll have no dead living with twenty five brand. It taught you the value of education. Because you don't want to grow up and make twenty five grand. I remember wanting to go on a date. And the only car i had was my father's car with a bastion driver's side door. And let me tell you that builds character it taught you on. At least you had a date. That's more than me. I'm going to have a nice car. But i didn't have the day if i hate to admit that was by only date in high school. My only one ran. It taught you hunger. Because if you want anything i made. It became very clear. It was up to me. Not a lot of people have trust funds. I certainly didn't have a trust for parents who could pay very little from my college education. I had to take loans and scholarships and i benefit from scholarships from people who i would never meet which is why the first thing i did when i made a little bit of money. I created scholarships any honor. My parents are cornell to return the favor but it laid a solid foundation of good values. Emma fear a what. You didn't wanna be when you grow up and so as years went by this would serve me extremely well in terms of the changing passant idea what i'm going to move to you and folks on news the leader in many respects because again i did a lot of research before and he said when he moved from the maybe more conceal a role to the more sensual. See year with mike kind of stopping inside in two thousand twelve. You said that you might as brakes. Changed as a result so significantly to entreat how did you change and what was the most prominent changes in not mayes breaks. So people have called me more than once. A bit of control freak. I can make the trains run on time. If you ask me to take a hill to get something done. I will commit to you. That things are going to be done. Unbudgeted on-time if. I'm on the board of a company that fails it fails in a very organized way. If i'm lucky enough to be on company succeeds.

"You're never gonna win. If you see that happening you change the rules. So if you see coca cola on the battlefield you become like the five hour energy drinks and you take different shelf space and you change the size of the bottle and in the same way with left. They didn't try to engage in any direct hand hand combat. It became like. Let's figure out who we are and what we want to do. And that was about other engaged. I love in terms of not being the bodily gatien into the top of kind of cool decisions of deciding which game they to play powers a lot on the cool business itself. I just wanna lost. How did you advise them on prioritization. Did they think through privatization of the days and what look like. They did make decisions to really focus. Yeah and some of it was just sort of. How do they expand on a market by market basis. Some of it was also. When will uber come in to what we're doing right. So part of the debate was when will come in his as i said when we first launched there were black. Cars be voller. Look like you're really rich. That's very different to high-fiving the guy who's picking you up and being friends and having a giant pink stash of the front of your car but what was interesting was the quick recognition from the market that this peer to peer driving service would be where everything was fought in one and so it did become very rapidly competitive. The question was like how big to san francisco need to get because that's where we got started and then how do you expand market by market so for a while it was just this focus on. Let's get the sing now. let's get l. a. Right and i think every few months we were launching arquette's it wasn't until he goes two thousand fourteen. This is what. I rolled off the board. The first time they went live with twenty four markets. Just as i was rolling off the board. And i remember being my twenty four markets. That's just insanity huge. It's like it's just a mere drop in the bucket right but like that. Focus on we're gonna create the best experience for riders drivers. Were going to do that. By standing market by market understanding the dynamics that was a real saint for them. I think that's the bigger question. Where does that focus. Come from while if you read the initial pitch and you go through the first set of sides on it and you say okay. Close your eyes now and say. Is this resume writers for left. It could be for either that original vision of. Why are they building this company. What makes it meaningful those. Were all things that stay true even as they were going public even if you ask the founders. Today i think that's where the focus comes from is they were just building business. They were building a vision for the future. Can you mention the incredible market expansion. That what did you learn about. Monkeys found shirt from seeing them execute. So alan thompson. Continuously opening up new baucus to conceive as well i think as a seed investor. I love the focus in one market and not just saying we're gonna go national. I see this tendency actually with a lot of founders. Today is like just on the seed or in the series. Hey we're going to go national. It's going to be huge. And it took a long time for these companies to get to that stage and so the idea of like how do we make this market. Work like really work and understand. What's the dynamic so we go to another one realized. This rocket has slightly different dynamics. And how do you make that. Market work like l. A. was an interesting one because remember. Initially it was like it's nothing like san francisco. Has everyone has a car. And so you get actually a lot of drivers. Maybe not as many riders and that's a different dynamic you the love starving artists there and so actually navigating and understanding the dynamics giving the team the right resources to be really successful. I think that was really interesting to me in the early days. What were the signals that the was working was number of drives. Dr oh was it. Not how frequent east it on the wiki basis. What do you think was to kind of cool measurement of success for walking ultimately we were always looking at eta right sell. When was driver going to be able to reach a writer and you would see that. The market really worked for the rider if you had driver. That was just a few minutes away in not metric. Uc's the dynamics of a marketplace that you have liquidity you have the right supply. Have the right demand. And so i think like that ability to see that was important. We on competition. I nine mentioned feeding being at mayfield before the show and he said about the competition from furnace impact on financing strategy and competition may financing challenging in some of the competition. And what happened really like kind of ramped up in that two thousand fourteen to two thousand sixteen period where luckily i was not on the board. But i know like for wild there. There're beaumont's where i think lift had just a few months of cash left and their points where the way in which the financing were happening. You're just have limited numbers of folks who could even write the check sizes that you needed and so the world was just getting smaller in smaller and people are being asked to pick sides. And so i think in that moment again if you're just competing and you're just working on that who's better than that's harder but again when you come back to. What's your different. Are you investing into the different piece. Then all of a sudden there's a new lease it's critical for us to is like a small investing for we always say duck force a choice. Don't force a comparison. I mean it's interesting. Because the motor people started the label. That kind of capital is the most in in this market like it is very much from needs say in law. Small delivery substance. People often say to think about that. it was council. The most in this case and you didn't get capital has become a really important component. But i just don't think it replaces the fact that if you don't have founders and leadership and it's willing to figure things out consistently you're wasting money like you can throw money at the problem only for so long before the market catches up to you and we've seen actually markets entire markets fail because people threw money at a problem. That really shouldn't have money thrown out it and so i believe that capitals very powerful weapon. But you actually have to really know. It's like weapons-grade plutonium right. Like you have to know which way to directed otherwise you can actually become the victim of that weapon. The challenge that i often have found has come to me and they say harry competitors raising hundred from manual large from crossing the fund. We didn't need it but we kind of have to raise the hundreds pounding. You advise families in that case it is very often i hear was we really need it. But if all competitors on a scale everything we're going to be left behind. And i think there is some traced to that statement. I think it's not so much. The scaling component sometimes the hiring component if you want to attract the best employees sometimes these days they care about that ten years ago. No one ever did a press release on how much they raise or what their most recent valuation is that is now a press release. it's a different mindset from employee standpoint. in so you do have to cater to that. But then the question becomes. How do you spend it. The truth is great. Companies don't necessarily get built on the back of ton of capital that is not necessarily the ingredient that causes success. You have a lot of different examples where that's just not true right. You have viva systems. Only seven million dollars ever and is now forty billion dollar company. You have call tricks that the first time they raise they already have fifty million dollars in revenues and so the capital z. Turns out even though employ seemed to be attracted to companies where the company's not as capitol efficient for the employees. It's better if company is wildly capital ship. Because you yourself don't get deleted. I think it's a fine balance because what you really want is a founder. Who's capable of developing an incredibly powerful narrative for why people should join the company why customers should trust this company without this blunt instrument of capital. And so i do worry about how do you spend it. Why do you spend it and you believe that you have product market fit just because you have this incredible round.

"It's really hard right. And especially since i have a team i can't just walk into out. We're gonna invest in this company. We need to really talk about it. Get through it. The pluses and minuses get people's opinions. And so we just need to make sure we're little nimble though in terms of moving and taking advantage of opportunities and not turning down water driver and jeff green zone world because the raising a small amount of money or we don't understand sir. Can i ask you silence david. Tissue box. I said if you think about your biggest miss what would you big as mississippi and guess what were the tangible takeaways. That changed how you think about investing. Because of that yeah. I give you two quick examples because they're related to what i just said about the individuals that i met in one meeting and invested. I meant shawn rats from tender. And i met the guys from honey and i turned out honey twice and actually go back to the email exchanges. I had with him. And i actually turned down as i said in the email because i didn't have the time. That's a terrible answer. Terrible answer and i think it was more. Maybe i just didn't understand the business as well. And there's going to be those types of situations and i think that the learning is that as i get deeper into our investment career. Both bonfire double am as a fresh oil. I guess maybe professional center at work but you still end up. Investing in we invest in the stage were really investing in the founder and the person and the team and we need to be. I just need to continue to be to get conviction on those types of feelings. When i have with founder i tend to agree with you. Sorry young over into some form of short sheelah. My question is when you said about that kind of the brain trust and you know you call and say yes. Ima first meeting and then you said about kind of that found a centrist in the relationship with them. My concern is today with liquid markets that we have in a proliferation of capital. That we have. You don't have the time on the fundraisers themselves and bluntly you just have to make decisions false than ever before. How do you balance centrist founder relationship with the need to make decisions vary very false in these markets. Well we're all in the same boat so we talked a lot about this. Been need to move. It's been fun to find a situation where we all have this feeling around the founding team. We gotta move fast. We have done a meeting term sheet in nine days which is now apparently a little bit long. I'm hearing things are happening over the weekend but nine days is a big move for somebody. Investing in seed company. We can talk about the tigers and all those guys. they're doing great fine. They're looking at companies. That have quite a bit more traction and things happening so they can make those decisions faster. We still need to go back. We're trying to understand how big the market is very little traction with these companies. We're trying to understand that founding team and in order standing team. You need to do those types of references. You need to have the conversation with people around him. And the other side of the coin. Very hard i think. All of the expectations for these founders. Now they do twenty zoom meetings in a week and they wanna decision faster. So we're all dealing with that and learning to move faster and we'll see how plays out it will be totally insane. You're right. I think a big part in terms of the compression of the fundraising timelines when we get into bone. Fine the brain trust Honestly one of my biggest passions in life one of the many reasons why limited friendship group is portfolio construction when we think about forty construction fee. Today how do you think about this story. Adventure vastagh. I'm sure he thought about this a lot with one hundred one analyst that you have in your fund. What's the right number of lines. And how do you approach it right. But we have made our bed. We said we are seeing investors in. B2b's offer and we're very good at it. We're getting better always trying to get better. But we're not gonna move out of that so we have a very clear focus in what we do and we do about seven to eight. Seventy nine deals a year. We'll have a twenty four to twenty eight company portfolio and we do about forty percent of the best are the primary check and sixty percent. Follow on very methodical ways. We think about follow on and how much we're going to put into additional companies but we stick to our knitting and we're trying to get deeper in what we know and our knitting and not wider. That makes sense. Look we lucked out. We focused on. Jim and i've been focused on for many years the b. to b. cloud software and that has turned out to be a pretty big business. But we want to stay focused there and on the construction. We may dial up risk. Obviously we're monitoring the portfolio at all times. We meet dial up risk if the portfolio is kind of down the middle after maybe do three or four investments. That are down the middle type of things that we like to do. We'll dial up risk for some opportunities that may be a unique founder or some situation where there's not as much traction Tell us you mentioned that. Twenty four to twenty eight when you think about ownership. I think this is one which is actually really changing every time before. Five ten years twenty percent ownership was pretty feasible impossible. Now i think is more challenging. How do you think about the centrality of ownership today. When you're making a decision and this is why i made big mistakes honestly markup said no because it was eight percent and i want to thirteen or fourteen and it was pugin. Thanks how do you think centrality of ownership right so we focus on. I heard you david tissue that everybody has their opinions. And i think they're all valid depends on what you believe in what you're fund is set up to do. We invest in the seat. As i keep saying and we really liked to take ownership because we understand and believe will be diluted over time we'd like to take as much ownership in the seed. We almost doubled down. Because of the amount of capital we put in not necessarily ownership will maintain are pro rata in the around. We might do a little bit in the be and then we're done and so we believe that if we are going to be the type of measures we are which is we get very involved with companies. We spend time we want to be the first call. You make or bad news and good news. If we're going to be putting all that work into these companies we want to have ownership and such that when this company takes off or has an exit that we've actually been rewarded for the time we put in and the capital we put in us..

"As probably the best predictor of success on a against that dimension and so i think the learning algorithm here is you have to figure out what culture is going to be authentic to your organization. Because that's the only one that you're gonna be able to live and breathe no matter what's on the walls on your website number two. You have to figure out through testing. I don't know how you would intellectually figure this out through testing and documenting which questions and assessment methods are best figuring out whether or not people fit with your culture. And then i think you know once you've hired you know a few people one of the second order facts of doing the first two steps that the initial group were really recruit the next group for you know the first ten people will help you recruit the next ten and the next fifty after that and that's really how your culture can continuously grow now. It also means you know the corollary to that is hopefully set your culture up successfully because if you're growing really fast than scale you know something that you don't like if you copy something in your cultural dna that continues to grow very very quickly that also has negative consequences. If it's something that you didn't like in the first place cannot one often challenged. I see when there's a exact role within a company and there's a lot of people in town knew he wanted. How do you think about how to bring in an giang alita without disincentivising internal talent. Who may be wanted that role. It's a tough question. I don't think they're perfect answers. I think the only success criteria here. I've seen is you have to hire someone. Excellent where it's so obvious for the person on the inside that this person on the outside can really help their careers and really grow them. You know because we think about it. The person on the inside is going to help the external candidate by learning the organization. How the company works how to get things done. Ideally the person on the outside is have seen one or two orders of magnitude of scale ahead of the person in the inside such that they can turbo the careers of the people in the inside. I think when you can get to work. I've seen a work really really well. Otherwise it can be a challenge. I think it's one of the biggest challenges. Seventy when you bring in those amazing people as the element of delegation and the ability to delegate. I'd love how you think about your decision. Making braces around what to delegate versus. What remains in your view. How do you think about that. I i don't know if i've thought about the zero one more thought about i. Guess the degree of delegation. You know how much of something. And i guess you know we can dream big start small right if the ultimate goal you you have a point of view in and hopefully this is well articulated as you're starting your recruiting process what you ultimately like this person to grow into and it doesn't have to be like super detailed but but you have to have some general sense to both. I think be honest with yourself as well as with the candidate. But i think when the person is in the door in order to set them up for success you probably wanna start small because of the information as century of how your organization works versus how they may think your organization works is very very large. It's almost impossible to estimate as a result. I think you're probably better served. If you start by giving a small scope with something that seems embarrassingly small but then to grow that quickly as they start garnering success because the number one thing you're trying to do for the executive coming in is optimized for success quickly that way they can garner the trust of those that they've inherited as well as the peers as well as others in the organization. And that's really how you set them up on a journey to i think achieved that northstar that you communicated during the recruiting process that she keeps revolt. He has the milkshake task East by getting emotional for them in in twenty or thirty minutes and once you do that it scales and scales and scales so i totally loved that in terms of reducing the scapegoat in terms of culture mentioned earlier. When you think about the skating culture that you've had a daughter. Ashby completed scale and has failed so fast. Was there ever a moment when you like cultures To be wild like it to be what was not limited time. What did you do to turn it around. Yeah this is a constant question Where you're always evolving me. Just like your product. I think in organization would be embarrassed. Their product looked the same a year later versus today. Why is that not true for your culture. You know maybe a changes more slowly because you know you're talking about people ultimately when you talk about culture as opposed to you know software or other types of products but it. Ideally is always improving. When i think about some of operating principles. Maybe it wasn't that our culture went south. I think those instances are maybe when we didn't recruit the right people were we promoted the wrong behavior and those are few and far between actually fairly easy to correct. If you hold yourself accountable. I think the harder parts of improving culture are trying to actually change in ads of the culture. You know for example in twenty fifteen maybe between two thousand fifteen twenty sixteen year two three of our companies life. We realized that the early team was not very diverse. So very early on. We added this video. We added in twenty seventeen about making room at the table as one of our operating principles and thinking outside the room because we started becoming more and more decentralized aware we had in general managers physically located inside different cities and so we were always in the same room anymore and adding. Those wasn't a way to just you know. Make ourselves feel better about her culture. I mean we added those values by also adding operating metrics enshrined decree mechanisms internally in which we can actually make true those values and so that was a lot harder though. Because you're now almost saying okay Add something to your personality. That's like what culture is like a teams personality as opposed individuals personality but changing or adding to your personality is very very difficult versus adding some feature to your product right and so that was something that only could happen top down but then it took the organization to bottoms up create the mechanisms that they would organically adopt in. See not only league. The positive organizational outcomes but also the positive business improvements one or two of those mechanisms. I asked you. Because i i hear a lot of companies and say oh we instill diversity and inclusion cool culture point and it's like great. How you measuring like. What does that mean that you did you put in place. I mean the first thing is you have to actually be able to measure these things and for example. What's the first thing you can measure. This can start small and say what's the representation inside your teen's does that match the representation inside the decision makers you know. It's it's a very easy question in and then you can go team by team that same question and that one question or i guess. Two types of data points to collect will probably take years to make improvements on. I mean we're almost there. Where the representation at the company in the representation of the decision makers are even. But we're i mean twenty and fifteen twenty twenty twenty six years out of our eight years. We've been working seventy five percent Lifetime history and we're still not there and so it takes real work and then it's going through that funnel who are the people they you're recruiting wire the funnels the way they because we're all always gonna hire those that look like us or sound like us or more in our circles and cetera et cetera. That's going to be the general bias. And so how do you enforce diversity in the funnels. How does the diversity carry through the funnel and then how does that diversity than translated. Someone's career the company with the things around promotions assignments on key projects etc etc etc. You know thinking outside the room for example that was one where it's less relevant during covid but in a pre pandemic maybe post pandemic world where we're going to be in some hybrid version. All of us of sometimes being co located other times being dislocated. How do you make sure that the person who has may be the most disadvantaged because they're not in the room actually gets this week. I had you make sure that the most junior person may be closest to the problem speaks before the senior person who has the quote unquote viewer oversight of the team speak. I think those are some the mechanisms that you really have to practice in order to make true the cultural beliefs. You wanna come back to the office i do. It's one of the things i miss. I think this is such a am organizationally specific question. I definitely can see a working for for for different groups but you know at least for us as always had very electric kinds of energy levels in all of our offices and this is unjust. The san francisco office bit across all offices globally. Anything that it's one of the things that not just in hearing about it during some of our internal team conversations but also seen it in some of our employees voice surveys. It's something that a lot of people wanna do speaking of the relentless advocacy that final one to quit flat. Little buddy tells me that you walk.

"Items that are built into our society is social way about what you choose to pass on what used to stop through natural human social filters breaks down. And all of a sudden everyone's talking to everyone in no one can hear anything. And so to me kind of the last step of that, which is truth is always been social for the last one hundred fifty two hundred years, he relied on these physical media artifacts in order to bolster shoes or share it. More broadly. You might not trust the reporter. But you see the photo. But that trust is gonna go away as soon as we have Albert of the conceit video in photos as well as we can calendar is right. And we're really kind of social distributed just world which again is fascinating. But it's gonna be really really challenging transition. I think for us in the global society. What are you most concerned about when you've you getting foods, I'm an optimist? So I would argue I think there's a lot of challenges, but I mostly optimistic about where we can get to the thing. We most concerned about is that I don't go to well setup to make these the average discussions of make these choices of society prisons. I think that things as basic as, you know, the, constitution, etc. Really? Really are gonna have to be re-examined that a lot of ways. And I don't think that we have the social structures to do that very well in the west simultaneous. I guess I am worried that the centralize Asana -tarian pass through human civilization is a lot of ways. I see the most straightforward, right? It will be very powerful. I mean, again, a lot of respect for the Chinese. I understand what they're doing. But like take their across to genetic records. Right with Fazli says, look we're gonna get samples from everyone in centralize it and build a bunch of research. We could never do that in the west, right? Our privacy frameworks our values keep us from giving that that's going to be a really powerful data set. So how are we gonna feel about kind of being left out of these resolutions in? How are we know wrestle that? I think as civilizations is going to be a challenge of our age needs help, my son will focus on I think, you know, we're going to need more philosophers as much as we need more programmers. Thanks thanksgiving, be issues that the kind of new technological superpowers are kind of bringing to our world's idea agree with you. I've loved to see them for those of us. How do you wanna talk show mum fine? Lavaman much of the blame. So to speak with a little. Of this content has been placed around with the distribution channels. Stay Facebook's Twitter's how navy you their role today and g think maybe the blames misplaced. That's a waiting question. I mean, I think that actually I would argue a technological determinist. I argue that once systems existed or set up in a certain way, what kind of falls out of them a lot of hard work by individuals. Details may be different, but the macaroni picture and it results from what the system is capable of feeling. I would argue that if you read your science fiction or toss people people like to pretend as though what's happened on the internet is shocking them and could never have been forecasted or foreseen. That's like I'll use a British britishisms. It's like a load of bollocks like very out. The is is that people have been writing about this happening for twenty years..

"Healthy free time where you can go out and be with friends or how great students is not going to be stuck in this middle state where you're technically at work. But you're stuck leads to the internet because at senior you have to be there. But you're not being productive. Yeah. No, I couldn't agree. More not challenging middle states. Do you have to say some of you fall the yourself and kind of thinking forward with the future Naomi driven years to come. Where would you maybe like your child's problem very cohesion?

So I'm not very positive on this stuff in terms of whether it's designing systems are philosophy or math or painting or doing a thousand other thing. I think there's no question. There's there's gonna the abundance of opportunity. It'll just be different finding the real challenging is that I think it'll be harder to find steady repeatable, trusted work. That's always rely on creativity creating things coming up with new ideas. You'll be lots of opportunities.

I need to think about a superpower that I could seek to anyone earth instantly for free and apply. The way that sets a pretty amazing thing. The problem is is that communication requires more than just see should also requires memory in it, also choirs identity collectively requires based secure databases and the internet ever distributed those, and so as a result, what happened is you.

"Stay and it's not a dominant thought fee whenever I'm doing investment. First question. I asked myself as as ten times out of a hundred times larger I think after a hundred times larger you get into silly territory in terms of like how big thanks and be. Everyone's no out three might be a thousand times bigger than when you address. But man, that's like a once in a career twice in a career type moment. I do think you can do ten x hundred x model I agree with Janney that I think people systematically under appreciate how large the world is and therefore especially in a globalized environment. How big a niche markets actually can be when you blow them up and steal them up. But I think it's an interesting calculus. I tell her personally do you love because if you do you love, it's just an. Anonymous argument the realities of where you invest and get in it, and the reality is if you some esoteric comic book saying or you like reenacting, the revolutionary war taking my brother right now us, the reality is the market of those things is much bigger than you realize concise still matters and the world is not infinitely large. I totally agree. When I started the twenty minute visi, I thought that'd be about ten people my mother, and now there's two hundred and fifty thousand VC vocals, so I. Got one mother. You're you're Mark. Harass Disney, even listen anymore. Still today some fine to the schedule before we move to are we lost conversation two years ago about the man versus machine relationship times now grown as we said two years. So I have to ask what you more for. We learned and observed David the last two years with regards to that human versus kind of compete a hybrid system relationship. So I don't think it's computer versus humid. I think that's what you and I talked a lot about in our first podcast. But at the time when like Facebook and being very excited his idea that you could do a bunch of tasks, and you'd have his magical blackbox. Hey, I would learn from humans and the data set and then while you wouldn't need people anymore. I mean, how wrong has that proven to be as a model my own horn as I was trying to push years ago, and we still push, you know, the real model. I think is you have to say about a I and people at symbiotic, and you have to think about the real transition in the industrial revolution of knowledge work. We're going through is going from reality. Check collagen, we need to change how workers or. It is and focus humans of the most human tasks and production allies factories of machines around them, get them as most leverages impossibly cat. So it's very similar to how the industrial revolution happen. Steam alone. Actually, doesn't get you. Massive increases in productivity is an incredible study about electric engine. The electric motor was invented. How factories Rachel it? Didn't have this immediate improvement. You had to do was we organize the factory floor change. How work was done changed? What parts of work people are focusing on? And then you get the unleash massive productivity gains. You know, massive increases in quality, etc. So I mean, that's what I've been working on for a long time when she needed they'll show revolution. That the one thing that strikes me as different now to them is simply the speed of adoption, how do you think about the speed of adoption how does that maybe change alter how you think about the relationship and symbiosis is a great paper that I read recently, it was referred to me about when you electric motor was invented. And before you had these factories that were based steam or water power, and they were all based on. Central guy trains, so electric Motors, invented forty years, the electric motor adopted into factories and initially didn't really not to get leverage from it is there in his retrofitting Docker, you know, rootlets operas down totally changed how they're organized to take advantage of this idea of modular power, right and distributed Motors throughout soccer environment. It's going to be faster. Maybe it's twenty years right for fifteen years for adopted, but it's also nut tomorrow..

"And we needed capital the scale the business to get to a place where we can do so much more. So I think it really comes down to doing what's right in your situation. And each one is completely unique. I love the reasoning behind you wind app, but. Now, we know why you wanna raise if we of go to the subsequent stab. It's a case of how do we choose the investment Paul and for us? I'm really interested each as we mentioned, Ron audio we chose etc. How do you think funny elements of invested selection and kind of the talk considerations for you in this person? Yes. So I had actually are other first investor Adam Ross of gold crest capital with some of that actually brought on before we had any investors.

Changed this goes vision, but really come alongside and the characteristic that Ryan embodies that atom, and then dated Glen of capital series is all three of them are phenomenal listeners, and they are have helped this go via debtor version of it self not disco be something that's not. And so for me that has been the key of what I've looked at some of that has value to add beyond their capital because quite honestly has capital. It's really is not a differentiator anymore at all.

You realize how much you have to learn I look back now at the table banging where I banged the table with conviction for this or against this and I had such certainty, and it was very binary with time. I look back with using regret on so many of those binary decisions that in reality word binary in reality. There's there's a spectrum of probabilities in a spectrum of perspectives. And I think it's important not just to have a perspective and a point of view, but to have understanding of your confidence in that perspective. It should always be one hundred percent or zero percent. It's hunting to truly sort of understand that there's new us. And I wish I had known that earlier. And then final question. I'm so sad that as I said, I cool it the twenty minute VC but final question. Most recent publicly announced investment, Josh, I'm white you go so excited. So I'll probably talk about screen discovery. It was founded by Ben came in sweat got into no for several months while he was on his journey of the pick. And I what sold me was Ben and the way he ran his journey. The people the talked to every time I would get together with him. He'd be exploring different space exposed his intellectual curiosity, and the intellectual honesty that he was taking that he just wasn't locking in an idea. And I think he's like the as a big one, he's focusing on sort of combining modern day with longevity, and as I've gotten to know more about health investing. I think there's just a massive disruptive opportunity for a I during this time. It reminds me of sort of this is like quickfire. So I'll I'll end it there. I could go on for ten minutes on why I think AI healthcare is a transformationally disruptive. Type. Join Abe reminds you of all to intrigue leaving eventually that on the cliff, Honey. So when I started my first company in fanatics when I went to college nineteen nine the web browser wasn't invented. When I left the web browser was invented Netscape was getting started. So that was a magical time because this new platform was coming into existence. And what this new platform did is it enabled me, a rookie someone in college. You spend all of his time geeking out on the internet. And when if you looked at it twenty years so veteran in the software industry, I had that moment in time. I had just as much experience on the internet. As a veteran did and this was a magical time because the gap between veteran and rookie kind of got thrown out a lack normally the veteran has so much of an advantage. And this new platform kind of nullified a lot of that advantage. And I think we've seen that in other like reply for seeing it now in crypto, for example, where I'd argue that there are seniors in college of just more experience in crypto than driven of traders, Goldman Sachs, it's this dislocation and the experience curve that creates real. Opportunities for rookies. And when you sit down and look at life science and health care companies and the medicinal chemists send their traditional drug discovery flows. And all of those assets. I would argue that. Hey, I right now is such disruptive platform that it really is reducing not eliminating, but reducing the gap between veteran and rookie. And then came in bring discovery was just wasn't exceptional rookie that I wanted to bet on here. I mean, I'm so glad I pushed on that. Because that was phenomenal Jewish as I said before three names when I started doing this show, you absolutely one of them. It's been such a top fuel and say, thank you so much. Joining me stay thank you so much for having the it's been fabulous..

"Even if they're not the true lead of the B round. And all of that creates a situation where it's actually more competitive, even if the number of firms doing it is an increasing canal incomes of one on them. And he said that you said most ratio. I'm always fascinated by most ration- the world eventually web, even be it still remarkably a game of allies and the multiples that you can get on the. Companies of the day, so to speak all still huge enormous. How do you think about loss ratio? How does that come into your thinking? And kind of Len I'm wide is it really become more prominent goes back to what we were talking about around projected performance in portfolio construction. And if you're able to identify really high flying investments that can end up being five to ten X's, and you're not playing for more of abandoned two to four x then you can sustain full write-offs or return of capital, that's less than a one x few investments within your portfolio, but what you can't do is play for middling type outcomes. And also have loss rates that are high. That's just not a winning recipe and you'll end up reverting to mediocrity. And we all know that the median performance within venture is not good. It's actually bad. And so you really need to be thoughtful about balancing that. And as we round investor if you play it too safe. That's what's going to end up happening. So I think it's finding that ability to get the outsize winners. Prices aren't crazy and still trying to find a way to mitigate loss. But when you're shooting for the moon on some of these inevitably you're going to have full loss of I think some balance they're putting an exact number one. An appropriate loss rate is for be is is sort of hard in a I think you expect thirty to forty percent loss rate within be less than that. But it's all about how you mix the winners the losers. Yeah. Absolutely. I couldn't agree. The more incomes not gonna pull construction being central that. I didn't want him touch of that we come out before they and it's really risen in the world event should being direct secondary investing when we chatted before they simply still in the early innings of direct secondary can always onto what makes you think. This and how do you predict the growth of the space on all over the next coming is when I say direct secondary. When I'm referring to is coming in and buying shares, mostly from employees, departed employees within a company, and it all goes back to the fact that companies are staying private longer within the venturous class. And I think it's increasingly become acceptable for there to be some level of partial acquitted, at least at the senior management level. The board recognizes that that can be a win win for all because then management is more incentive to play for a bigger outcome isn't as worried on a day to day basis about meeting financial obligations, and so taking ten to twenty percent position.

"You have now arrived at your destination. It really is such a pleasure to have you on the state big mar fuels from a FOX. Thank you so much for joining me. Stay hunter pleasure. Harry feel the same way about you and your show, and if enjoyed listening to it the Barry Eggers episode two weeks ago, everyone was a big fan of your at green spring. Well, thank you so much. So kind of you, I'm when you have Barry on the show, it makes my life easier from an interviews perspective. But I would love to sell a stake with a little on you hunter. So when you were a little boy, did you is wants to be an LP, and how did you make your way to partner? Green sprinting today, not at all I actually didn't even think about being in finance when I went and got my undergrad at university of Pennsylvania, I focused on international relations with a little bit of a site focus on history and legal studies and felt like I was going to either go into government or do something on the law side ended up deciding the work for a law firm for about a year after I graduated and decided that was not a good direction for me to go in and instead. Pivoted and decided to get my MBA. And even then when I was getting my MBA avoided parts of finance that I didn't love and really gravitated towards the elements of finance that were more focused on behavior and evaluating people rather than being in-depth from a modeling standpoint and getting too caught up on the quantitative side. And that's really where gravitated to since. Then I got an internship between my two NBA years at a firm called Camden partners, which was just a wonderful introduction for me into alternative investing. We did mostly lower middle market buyout. And then a little bit in mezzanine and distressed and other areas. Twenty five percent focus on venture and got to see everything else that was out there and gravitated towards venture for a number of reasons and ironically enough, a friend and former classmate of mine from high school, John Everett, I stayed close in touch with. And he convinced me to move over and join green spring about eight years ago. So started as an associate then and now fortunate to be the fifth partner on the. Team and get to work with someone. I went to high school with and a number of years ago and focus on venture, which I think is really compelling and interesting and get to do it in a platform where we do fund direct and secondary investing with a number of different funds focused in different areas adventure so a really holistic complete an enjoyable place to were absolutely. And I think we have many things including the origination is a lawyer and then also removing ourselves from Quantel amounts to finance nonce grades hand. But I do you want us thought state, maybe from the ground up you mentioned that in the focus on banjo both Iraq and the environment with fund investing. I want to focus on that ground up Ataman installing with these closure that we've seen in the world of mine. Curvy, see funds VC funds six hundred now on the west coast. If you can believe at starting with that hunter, how do you see as an LP the micro V C in very very early stage. Mock today this area of passion for me. I'm a big fan of micro. We're fortunate to have dedicated micro fund the funds here at green spring. And so it's an. Area. We spend a lot of time around. And it is where you're seeing a lot of the new proliferation of groups that are coming into somewhere around six hundred six fifty I think is the right estimate. It's crowded it's congested. It's messy. That's also what makes it fun from an evaluation standpoint. And I think it's a category that just makes a ton of sense for all of the constituents that are involved. From an entrepreneurial standpoint, you have groups that will write more flexible in smaller, check.

"But sitting in the Okinawa entrepreneurial community and having many friends that are is there anything that you think a commonalities in what my errors hate found is about full members in particular or you'd maybe advise me against doing. So we're we're fortunate not stolen, but I do. And we do talk and something for investors to know that thank everybody knows it. But I think it's important to remind everybody that we could between how sides don't enterpreneurs because everybody will not this is a good time for in general in life, my beach, but. But I heard some horror stories, but I would say just one thing, but here repeats a bad way. These I like board members of panic, right? So trips said before so the board members Anik win shit hits the fan if something was wrong and just go into anecdote, which is never have full. Maybe also trying to optimize only for themselves. So I heard stories about investors. Well, of course as well. Who killed you can fundraising these women eight just to maximize it's not even material just not because they don't like not getting everything. So I heard of stories which sounds not to accept though to do. But you do hear about he's gonna stories and also playing political games companies trying as most of us do try not to be political just trying to get stuff done and work in a great environment. You don't want to run. So do not play games. I have to give, you know, more after two thousand five hundred apps as no one has ever said karma is a ditch on the poll cost. Welcome back. On the flip side of the table. That is not good and maybe more challenging bowl vendors for you managing the borders. The entrepreneur, how do you think about managing the border factory and there'd been some big lessons for you. You personally need to to really get the most out of the board as a whole and then the individuals themselves. I don't think I'm an expert in Bordman loadings, but share what I learned so far and is your next to your medical. Hopefully, we'll have more coming next month. I would say I one I would make sure to remind them what they tried to achieve right now all the way from like high level mission to even quarterly goals. And the thing is, you know, many investors and more members, you know, they say, many boards and companies, and it's it's trying to say, but some of the need to be reminded what exactly we're trying to achieve? I'm not saying that you will never forget what the company is doing. But maybe they might not remember what exactly your number because right now is so I would always make sure to remind them in board meetings. Also, just when we ask all have regular calls with most of my numbers. And I would just remind them what what are we working on right now? So that's number one. I also I would say always dinner and what I mean by that is actually one of my investments much from sandstone roads. Nice about it falling unless void beating Israel entire boards to Tel Aviv, and we make nature to our food day before the boy mating just two in Jerusalem. Just gone a touristic tippety, no discussion plan, and he asked him about it. Most of the value came outside of the boy. Most of the valley for him and for the rest of us came from India social interaction and immature of the management team as well there. So whatever you do dinner or two I would always plan actually do it every single time. Thanks a bit more time just to commit to kind of travel a bit longer than just three hours to avoid meeting. But you get way more value out of it than just sitting in the boardroom housing, the official formal discussion. I absolutely well massive. And I think max is incredible. So that was fantastic here about max in the peace, Emily in the show. And we mentioned in in many different cases down often..
