If you are a developer first, crypto infra or SaaS founder or VC, this newsletter is for you. I’ve been a first check investor for over 25 years investing in next generation technical founders at company formation, many of whom are creating new categories. These include day one investments in companies like Snyk, Blockdaemon, BigID, Kustomer, Superhuman, , and Security Scorecard. I also co-founded, MState, the world’s first enterprise blockchain lab in partnership with IBM and Comcast where we invested in the initial rounds of Fireblocks and Amberdata.io. I’ve also experienced several bull and bear markets, having been around since the mid-90s investing in SaaS pioneers like GoToMeeting and LivePerson, and open source infra startups like Greenplum which later IPOed as Pivotal Software.

Every week, I’ll share the most interesting stories and tweets I’ve read along with my unfiltered notes and thoughts. Usually, I’ll start off with some preamble or short essay on company building or market observation. Much of this newsletter is geared towards helping founders scale startups, raise capital, and what’s 🔥 with new tech trends. More on myself @edsim and my firm @boldstartvc.
