Investor Friendly Terms – AVC
At USV, we have always had simple and investor-friendly terms with the institutions and individuals that provide the capital we invest. We have never charged a premium carry or off-market management fee, we return all capital before taking carry distributions, and we recycle aggressively. via Pocket

Developer In Residence – AVC
For the past six months, Jed has been helping USV build some much-needed tools to connect people at our 60+ portfolio companies to each other. It has worked out well, so well that we decided to ask Jed to join us full time in a new role that we call Developer In Residence. via Pocket

Where Did You Go To School? – AVC
Frankly, I am not surprised. I’ve worked in this industry for over thirty years. It is full of Stanford and Harvard grads. via Pocket

Investment Pace – AVC
We were hanging out with friends last night and one of them asked me how many investments I have made this year. I replied “one so far.” He said, “you are not very active.” and I replied “I do one to two deals a year and always have.” Which surprised him. via Pocket

Slowing Down To Speed Up – AVC
It’s an interesting chart because it breaks out new investments and follow-on investments, both of which have been falling at Benchmark for going on five years now. The Recode article, written by Teddy Schliefer, also states that Benchmark has not raised a new core fund in over four years. via Pocket

Rapid Experimentation – AVC
It can be exhausting to try and stay caught up on every new tech company being started. The Gotham Gal said me to yesterday, “everyone is an entrepreneur these days.” She’s right about that directionally although most companies have employees who are not founders so it is not exactly correct. via Pocket

The Valuation Obsession – AVC
There is an obsession with the values that are being placed on companies when they finance. There has always been one but it is worse than ever. Every day, without fail, I read a headline that so and so company has raised, will raise, or is trying to raise capital at some eye popping valuation. via Pocket

Do Your Homework Before Sending That Email – AVC
But the underlying issue is not that funny. Someone took the time to send her a pitch email but did not take the time to figure out who she was. I’m always looking for an excuse to delete a cold email instead of replying to it. via Pocket

Supply And Demand – AVC
What is shows is that as the amount of money raised (and deployed) in seed funds has grown over the last ten years, the ability of the companies that received those seed investments to raise a follow-on Series A round has declined (massively). That trend is what you would expect, of course. via Pocket

Proof Of Blog – AVC
We have a tradition at USV that one of our new analysts, Dani, coined Proof Of Blog. Excited to be a part of the @usv team (it’s official now – based on Proof of Blog). I’m two weeks in, here’s some of what I’ve learned so far. https://t.co/1bajnjongr via Pocket

Why Decentralization Matters – AVC
So the news over the weekend is that Microsoft is buying GitHub. Many companies and developers are thinking “do I want my source code hosted on a service owned by Microsoft?” Fortunately, the protocol that GitHub is built on, Git, is open source and there are other Git hosts, like GitLab. via Pocket

Valuation Inflation – AVC
The amount of money raised in seed rounds has doubled and valuations have increased significantly. Since raising our third early-stage fund in 2012, we have led or co-led 16 seed rounds, 31 Srs A rounds, and 8 Srs B rounds, for a total of 55 new USV portfolio companies over the last six years. via Pocket
