"What in the world is Web 3.0!?" Part 1: A Primer on Crypto and the Web 3.0 Landscape

December 21st, 2021
Over the past few months, it’s been nearly impossible to walk away from any tech conversation without the mention of blockchain, crypto, and the overarching future of Web 3.0. Like many of you, I have been trying to piece together what the future of Web 3.0 looks like and why it should demand our attention. With every passing day, it seems that the Web 3.0 landscape is shifting in a new direction. As such, I wanted to lay out the basics of Web 3.0 for those who are early in their discovery and analysis of the subject.

6 Steps to Becoming a Successful Venture Capital Analyst

December 14th, 2021
Insights from my first 2.5 years as an early-stage VC and how to succeed at the job. Landing my first job in VC felt like hitting the jackpot. After countless coffee chats, networking events and interviews, as well as a humbling level of rejection, I had finally landed the golden ticket to join this mysterious world of venture investing as an analyst with Distributed Ventures (fka NFP Ventures). All the case studies and interviews taught me a great amount, but the learning was just getting started. I gained tremendous insight from reading several books on VC and learned from some very generous investors who shared their keys to success. A special shout-out goes to Shawn, Mike and Adam (thanks team!) who took a chance on me and have invested significantly in my growth and development. Since others have been so generous with their wisdom and support, I’m motivated to share what I’ve learned with others just starting their VC journey (or trying hard to get it started). Regardless of our successes, there are always questions — “Am I doing this right? Am I a good VC?!” given the open-ended and nebulous nature of the role. As we recently launched Distributed Ventures, a new chapter in our fund’s progression, the time seems right to add a more applied view to the role and pay forward what I’ve learned in my time in VC. Here are my six steps for becoming a successful VC analyst.
