The emancipation of enslaved Black Americans was not the end of our nation's work to deliver on the promise of equality — it was only the beginning. On Juneteenth, we recommit to our shared work to ensure racial justice, equity, and equality in America.

If we ask questions, we may look foolish — for a minute. But if we DON’T ask questions, we may remain fools — for life. The courage to ask questions, plus the persistence to chase down answers, is such a powerful edge! Here’s a story from Andy Grove’s life illustrating this:

Having survived two previous market resets (2001, 2009), people frequently ask me how this 2022 market reset is different and how it is the same. The obvious similarity is that valuation multiples have collapsed. We went from a "glass very full" mindset to one with many concerns.

likely the best piece i’ve read on strategy for managing reserves. very thorough discussion & analysis of complex topic by @LauraLPThompson @SapphireVC excellent read for new (and old) #VentureCapital fund managers cc @ckorver @infoarbitrage @ganeumann twitter.com/lauralpthompso…
Nearly every early-stage venture manager I encounter has a reserve strategy incorporated into their fund model. But here's what's surprising... reserves aren't always a good thing! Here's my new blog on just that topic. sapphireventures.com/blog/dirty-sec…

agree this is likely optimal IRR strategy out of a single fund. however if you have access to “unlimited capital” out of multiple vehicles, you may be able to maximize absolute value of returns vs. simply maximizing IRR. but it may create other challenges as @fdestin notes. twitter.com/fdestin/status…
We have been living in an economy running on free money for over a decade. During that time everyone went way out on the yield curve and funded a bunch of crazy shit. The tide just went out hard and fast. Lots of bad stuff is about to be exposed.

There is an inverse of: First they ignore you, Then they laugh at you, Then they fight you, Then you win. ------ No one cares. Your team cares. Your market cares. The world cares. ------ The hard part is the transition between these, all of your conviction is challenged.

We were told the Jan. 6 Committee would make no difference. But they've already moved the narrative from Trump's deplorable recklessness, irresponsibility, dereliction of duty, etc., to an understanding he was at the heart of a true criminal conspiracy. Not bad for a week's work.

I'm curious on why larger funds don't use 506c vs. 506b? Even if not soliciting generally, it prevents slipping on the various rules that 506b requires (many get it wrong). Sure, you have to do more to verify accreditation of the LP, but that's good business anyway.

This is a bipartisan effort, with the Senate side being led by Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas). A new interagency group called the Committee on National Critical Capabilities (CNCC) would be empowered to block deals it deems problematic. axios.com/2022/06/15/con…

much as i’d love to see Trump go to jail for: [take your pick: sedition, money laundering, embezzlement, misuse of funds, lying under oath, obstruction justice, etc] it’s far more important the ppl who worked for him go to jail to serve as an example for future “agents” #jan6
