EP 49: How to be a venture capitalist with a16z's Olivia Moore and Bryan Kim

Listen now on:



How do I get a job as a VC? How do I email or meet founders and build a reputation for myself? What do VCs all day (besides tweeting)? These and variations are some of the most common questions we get when we ask for topic suggestions.

To cover these I asked two of the people I work with at a16z who are a) amazing at being VCs and b) have taken very different career paths to get there. We have Olivia Moore and Bryan Kim (highly recommend you follow them both on Twitter). This was a blast and is a must listen for anyone interested in the inner workings of venture.
