It's a myth that we invest only in companies who are referred by someone known to us. We've recently invested in a company that cold-called us.
If we can build a world-class business, the liquidity (exits) will take care of themselves. In fact, in today's crazy world of Sarbanex-Oxley, it makes sense to stay private for as long as possible.
We want people to know that we can make $100,000 investments, that we invest in 18-19 year-olds and we invest in ideas that are not yet fully-developed.
My phone number is 650-854-3927 and email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. We love to hear new ideas and new entrepreneurs. !!!
How about that for an accessible VC?
