Network is not a dirty word • Technology Flow

Hello and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuances behind the headlines.

This is our Wednesday program where we get down to a single topic, think about a question, and unpack the rest. This week, Natasha asked: What does getting into venture capital look like today and how is it changing? Alex And Becca We hopped on the mic to discuss this and start with a refresher on our latest op-ed: “4 Views on Unpaid Venture Internships.”

  • We talked through three buckets of venture onramps: the traditional route, the new wave, and the tourism strategy. Each has its own pros and cons and includes everything from rolling funds to the true definition of a partner.
  • We’ve also covered some of the value on ramps and if it’s right (or based on its more track record) to disrupt the network.
  • We tried not to gang up on Dorm Room Fund too much, but we chatted about why their $12.5 million fund run by unpaid students pissed us off and what other programs we thought would be good for someone trying to break into VC.
