Investing In Talent Over TAM, Africa’s VC Boom And $510 Million For Supply Chain

view original post

This week Kenrick and I share some thoughts on the firms that take investing in a company’s founding team to a new level, I check in with San Francisco-based Eclipse about its new early growth fund aimed at companies that disrupt legacy industries, we look at the numbers behind the booming venture scene in Africa this year and we chat rebranding and performance with a firm that’s emerging from stealth with strong results on its strategy of investing at a startup’s incorporation in a quest to institutionalize the advisory stage.

Next week we’ll have a fun, themed issue so if you were forwarded this email make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss out. Let’s get to it.
