‎"The 10X Capital Podcast" with David Weisburd and Erik Torenberg | Startups, Venture Capital, and Limited Partners:

What investors are saying 🗣

🎙 Timur Davis, Investment Director at Munich Re Ventures, on space startups after a surge in investment activity in the sector during recent years.

“This year, 2024, will be a year of reckoning, to a large extent, for venture”

🎙 Reid Hoffman, serial entrepreneur and Partner at Greylock, on game theory and investing.

“In 2012, despite the prodigious impressiveness of the brothers Collison, I passed on investing in Stripe. Why? First, I basically had PTSD from my PayPal experience. I was wary of any financial services investments because on top of the regulatory complexity/friction, payments are incredibly difficult to get to scale. With insufficient volume, you are left tending to a money-hemorrhaging business due to all the chargebacks and fraud that are intrinsic to payments. So unless you have a really good theory about how to get to scale, it’s a fatal problem.”
