In this episode, host Joe Beninato and guest Kirsten Green of Forerunner Ventures answer viewer questions including:
- What are the key factors in your deciding to meet with an entrepreneur about their company? What are the key factors in your deciding to invest in that company?
- How does your firm handle a portfolio company that becomes somewhat successful, but is not a home run? How does that impact your investment in other companies in a similar space?
- Thank you, Kirsten, for your leadership as a woman in venture capital. Do you find the Silicon Valley community to be an "old boys network" where you are not taken seriously and/or have to work harder than the men?
- How much traction or sales growth is required in an e-commerce business before you'll decide to invest? Do you ever invest in an e-commerce idea that hasn't sold anything yet?
