8/24/2021 Tip: Meet Them on Their Blog

Today’s Quote

Today’s Tip

Yesterday I told you that the best way to meet VCs is through introductions. 

When that’s not an option, another great way is to meet them on their blogs.

Most of the top venture capitalists maintain their own blogs. For example, VC Brad Feld’s blog is located at www.feld.com, while VC Fred Wilson’s blog is located at www.avc.com.

Once you find the blog of the VC you would like to fund your company, read their blog posts. And then comment on them. Your comments should add valuable insights to the posts; showing that you’re smart and someone the VC would want to know. After a few comments, the VC will start to recognize you. And when they respond to one of your comments directly, you’ll have the chance to respond by asking them if they’d like to meet in person.

Previous Question: What generic name for any project for radical innovation was first used at Lockheed Martin and can be traced to the comic strip Li’l Abner, in which it is the job that no one wants?

Previous Answer: A Skunkworks project

A Skunkworks project often operates with a high degree of autonomy and unhampered by bureaucracy, tasked with working on advanced or secret projects. 

The distinctive name originated during WWII when the P-80 Shooting Star was designed by Lockheed’s Advanced Development Projects Division in Burbank, California.
