What investors are saying 🗣

🎙 Masha Bucher, Founder and General Partner at Day One Ventures, on being a solo GP in 2024

“You don't have to call a board meeting to decide on an investment…One of the biggest things in VC that you need to succeed—alongside great access—is your ability to decide really fast”

Masha Bucher, Founder and General Partner at Day One Ventures

🎙 Rex Woodbury, Founder of Daybreak, on tech’s blind spots

“One thing about Silicon Valley is that Silicon Valley disproportionately builds for….well, for Silicon Valley…But Silicon Valley’s inwardness also means that other groups get overlooked by technology. Those groups underpin large opportunities themselves, ones not yet captured by startups…baby boomers; gen alphas; industrials, manufacturing, & agriculture workers; internet workers.”

Rex Woodbury, Founder of Daybreak

🎙 Jeff Becker, General Partner at Antler, on indexing VC

“…as an asset class, early-stage venture has produced 19.7% IRR’s historically…the problem is, even if you wanted to, there is no infrastructure to simply buy the asset class. At least not without becoming an LP in dozens of funds and/or funds of funds with additional layers of fees…all of this is possible, it’s just going to take some time.”

Jeff Becker, General Partner at Antler
