Sierra Ventures Managing Partner Tim Guleri joined Nick Moran on The Full Ratchet podcast to talk about his journey as a Unicorn Founder Turned VC, the Future of the VC Landscape for Founders and VCs, and the “Founder Love” Metric.
Some takeaways from the episode include:
- Entrepreneurship can be born anywhere and Tim and the Sierra Ventures Team work with teams all over the world.
- Trends change, markets change, and entrepreneurs change. To be really good at the VC game you have to keep educating yourself and stay on top of innovation.
- The difference between founding a company today versus when Tim founded his companies is that today you can build an efficient business very quickly whereas when he was building his companies it took four to six years to get to $15-20 million in revenue.
- When working with founders, Tim looks for true intent on why a founder is in the business. Dedication is fundamental to building a solid foundation and lasting company.
