VC Brand Building

leave a comment »

We often see VCs spend a lot of time on a single blog post where they do a detailed market map of some space or some very thoughtful writeup of something which they self-publish or guest post on a place like TechCrunch. These are great to get things going and help build an initial audience but if you want to become a thought leader, you have to keep pounding on that theme – again and again. Again, if you look at Jason Lemkin’s SaaStr blog, you’ll see that he was “an overnight hit 5 years in the making”.  This is hard work.

Associate VC Job at BBG Ventures in NYC

leave a comment »

BBG Ventures is a NYC-based seed stage fund that invests in consumer tech start-ups with at least one female founder. We back the new wave of entrepreneurs who are reimagining daily life, creating market-defining products and services that make our work, play and home lives simpler, better — and more satisfying. We invest across marketplaces, commerce, media/content, services built on mobile and connected living.

We believe the greatest untapped opportunity for venture capital lies in backing women who are using technology to address common life-challenges and transform daily habits. Women are the dominant users of the fastest-growing mobile and social platforms, and they make or influence 85% of consumer purchases. We think it’s smart business (and plain old common sense) to invest in entrepreneurs who know the end-user best.

How to become a super-encounterer

You become a super-encounterer…in part because you believe that you are one — it helps to assume that you possess special powers of perception, like an invisible set of antennas, that will lead you to clues.
