I'm excited to announce that I’m joining Contrary as a General Partner to build out a later stage investing practice. The world of venture is changing and I’m excited to work with the team at Contrary to be a part of that change. The Times They Are A-Changin'
I'd be curious to hear more about how you go about finding the talent you're talking about. I'm also curious if there are any not-so-obvious talents that you've invested in - loving the posts btw
Was struck by this post when I read it a year ago and was reminded of it when listening to Patrick O’Shaughnessy’s interview with Samo Burja today. Love the concept of identifying what he calls “live players” and aligning with them - the challenge is identification of these pareto founders/forces of nature. Would love to hear about how that uniquely challenging pattern matching exercise has gone so far for you at Contrary at some point. Really enjoy your writing. Curtis O., Revolution Growth
