A blog? Me? You’re kidding, Mark, right? I don’t even have time to read blogs! Well, maybe one… every now and then… Our friend Brad Feld…he’s a VC in Boulder and really smart…and creative, I like his blog. I’m sure I could learn a lot from reading blogs – After six years, I still sometimes feel like I’m new at this VC stuff and certainly have a lot to learn. My partners Mark and Glenn know that…..they are always watching out for me and sending me good things to read. Things I’ve learned from. Tac also sends me stuff. Tac agreed to be an EIR for Highway12 Ventures – (Entrepreneur-in-Residence), but he’s really teaching us about social networking and its impact in the world. Very cool stuff. Our other partner George just talks to me in my office or in rental cars as we head out to see start-ups. Great partners and friends all. Now that I think about it, I’ve been very fortunate to learn from many great friends – many of them entrepreneurs.
I love entrepreneurs – I love other people too, but entrepreneurs are special. They will probably solve most of our current challenges and save the world.
You know maybe a blog where we share the lessons we have learned about start-ups from our own experiences and others isn’t such a bad idea…maybe it would be fun…and maybe even helpful. Inspirational is probably too much to hope for, but you never know. In talks and emails back and forth with partners, friends, and entrepreneurs, I often close with the words: “Your thoughts?” I’ve learned a lot that way…..
