Great thread. Two warnings: 1) the VC gig is so different (per Sarah’s tweets) that you may not enjoy it. At all. So make sure to think hard before jumping in despite all the perceived “glory”. 2)being a great operator does not mean you will be a great VC. https://twitter.com/sarahtavel/status/1130158192833392640
Super excited to share this news about our portfolio company @quadric_io which we seeded a couple of years ago with our @pearvc friends.

Thanks for the kind words, Howard. Appreciate having you as a friend and co-investor all these years!
Today Uncork Capital turns 15. It's a pretty crazy milestone, even though it feels like we just started. I decided to share a few thoughts about our humble beginnings: https://link.medium.com/cx7mKqRAlW
Finding a compelling subject for a cold pitch email is not easy. But "Next Big Unicorn Opportunity" is probably one of the lamest you could use...

France overhauls its special visa for tech talent https://tcrn.ch/2GZFTjr < The US desperately needs a similar program: competition over talent is driving the cost of scaling startups to unsustainable levels and preventing foreign talent from coming here is plain stupid.

Awesome interview of the incredible @juliahartz. I'm always surprised that a lot of my fellow VCs outright pass on entrepreneur couples. It certainly involves challenges in tough times, but it can also lead to very powerful results (like EB) https://nyti.ms/2GdYmra
