Calling Paul Matteucci

Paul is our VC. He lives upstairs above us in PodTech’s temporary headquarters inside USVP’s headquarters on Sand Hill Road (aka: the money bubble). I’ve just sent him this video from BetterBadNews that calls on Venture Capitalists to compete for their business. Hell, I’m gonna beat him to it. I just called the number and left a message.

Anyway, I love this line from the video: “ScccSssscccoble was going tell everybody about it.” Heheh, I should charge for THAT, if I had any business sense. After all, I just told all my competitors about this cool video show that, if I had any freaking business sense, I should keep as quiet as possible about.

But what fun would that be?

I bet that Venture Capitalists Rick Segal or Fred Wilson or Brad Feld or Jeff Clavier or David Hornick already called them.

  1. Nope for me, I never try to compete on deals. Either entrepreneurs value my involvement, or they don’t. But it is true that even at the super early stage, financing rounds of consumer companies are becoming oversubscribed.

    Geez, I’m really sorry about that. Must’ve been something I watched.

  7. Robert!!!! The blog was so much better when you didn’t drop so many names and you put more of your own thoughts into fewer posts. Slow down.
