The Additional Crunch Live series rolls along next week with something unique: My old boss is participating. Let me describe. Alexia Bonatsos When I first joined the publication, was once co-editor of TechCrunch and was part of my interview circuit. She taught me more than I can write down; Alexia is among my favorite people. She’s joining us for an Bonus Crunch Live session as
she’s now an investor at Dream Device VC, a company she started. Her partner, Niko Bonatsos , is taking part. Niko works for General Driver, where he’s a handling director. Dream Maker is a self-described”opportunistic seed fund,”indicating it makes early bets. General Catalyst tends to invest a little later however also has a seed effort that deserves a few dozen million dollars each year. So, the two are most likely concentrated on various parts of the market, even if there is some overlap. I won’t lie; I’m excited about this conversation. Alexia is somebody who always challenges my thinking
, and Niko is a curious VC in that I don’t think he’s ever attempted to bullshit me.(Indeed, he swung by the other week to chat with my Equity co-host Danny, which went pretty well. However call that a warm-up for this specific chat.) What will we discuss? We’ll cover the basics quickly– their present investing rate, changes in the face of COVID-19, that sort of thing– however then we’ll dig into the future. General Catalyst has actually participated in a couple of AI-focused financing rounds in 2020, and Dream Machine says that it” intends to assist extraordinary creators make science fiction non-fiction.”I have some concerns. However I will not be able to draw all the lines that we inquire to color in for us– you’ll be on hand to help. These Bonus Crunch Live chats have actually been a great reminder that you have a great deal of ideas and questions that deserve raising. I’ll see you on May 19 in the early afternoon on the East Coast, or the late morning if you’re out West. Details are below for Extra Crunch customers; if you require a pass, you can get an
affordable trial here. Let’s have some fun and speak about the future.– Alex Details Here’s the info you’ll require: May 19
