​​Today is July 11th. The age of “space tourism” has begun.

It’s taken 15 years for Galactic to get to this place. Been investing in #SPCE since late last year and now we get to see history happening! Aboard #Unity22 will be our team of two pilots and four mission specialists, including Sir Richard Branson. They will put our Future Astronaut spaceflight experience to a final test, while giving the world a preview of the life-changing experience.

​​The Open AI проинвестирует $100 миллионов в early-stage AI-стартапы, которые работают в направлениях, которые с максимальной пользой используют ИИ — health care, climate change и образование.

*Open AI — та самая компания, которая создала GPT-3 (а до этого и более ранние версии) и чей борд включает в себя весьма видных деятелей в этой области (Greg Brockman, Ilya Sutskever, Sam Altman, а также Adam D'Angelo, Holden Karnofsky, Reid Hoffman, Shivon Zilis и Tasha McCauley).

How We Got There: Venture Capital
📆 Tue, 30 March 12:00 – 1:00 PM
— The venture industry has long been considered an ol’ boys club. In the US, 65% of VC firms have zero women partners. Closer to home, KrAsia reviewed 34 VC firms active in South East Asia, and only 12 firms had a female partner on their investment teams. When firms lack visible women in leadership, they might underestimate - or even fail to spot - their next big investment.

They will discuss how they got started in their careers, what skills helped them succeed, and their tips for aspiring VCs. We’ll cover the business benefits of diversifying the investment team, and why this gives VC firms a competitive advantage.

Hey community! Our team have prepared an easy guide to improve your Survey Response Rate (RR)!

Almost anyone, who spent hours creating his/her Survey didn't got the feedback he expected. Overall, it's either because of low CTR (click through rate) or RR (response rate).

Here are 5 Pro Tips to Boost your Survey Response Rate.

Remember, you'll send 3 to 5 tailored, succinct offers/asks. If you don't hear back within five days, do a follow-up. You could also try reaching out via a different mode - twitter, LinkedIn, snail mail! Try two follow-ups, and then consider trying someone else at the firm. This concludes the hustle method portion of getting into VC that I've developed after lots of conversations and some first-hand experience. Other traditional ideas are job boards/sites. John Gannon's Blog is definitely one to check out.

I've held several conversations on the topic with aspiring VCs, so, these thread shares insights I've gathered. Please chime in with additional tips / ideas / resources. Helping more people from different backgrounds get into a venture is Key to Rocket!

OK, there are 2 ways to get into VC — First, join an existing fund. Second, start your own fund which sounds a bit complicated, right?
This thread focuses on 1st one - joining a fund. When I use the word "fund" throughout, it refers to a traditional VC fund, corporate VC, angel group, or any entity whose team invests in startups.

First, decide on three things you care about:
🌍 — Globe with meridians Where do you want to live? Is remote an option for you?
💼 — Briefcase What industry / area of focus do you care most about?
📏 — Straight ruler What stage of investing is of interest?

For example, you might say Moscow or NYC, hr-tech, seed to series A. Now that you have some direction, you'll create a spreadsheet (template) to do your research + analysis. You want to look at as many firms as possible that fit your criteria. Most people will look at 10 - 50 in total.

Which firms to put on your list?
Crunchbase Pro allows you to search for investors by city + type (it will cost you 348 dollars per year, but you will have 7 days free trial), BuiltIn offers lists of VCs in various cities or you can also check out the VC Funds List made by Shai Goldman (SVB) that aggregate VCs by stage. Two more quick resources for finding VCs are Active VC List by DocSend and a List of 111+ Women Owners of Venture and Growth Capital Funds & many of these will be growing quickly in the next few years compiled by Kate Brodock.

As you spend hours going through your firms of interest, you will start to get excited about a few. Mark these as high priority. Ideally, you end up with 3 to 5 highs. Now, you have to figure out how to connect with those VCs.

Identify someone at the VC firm you most resonate with. Don't worry if it's not a partner. Use LinkedIn/Facebook in Russia or LinkedIn/Twitter in US and the VC's website to learn about every single person at the firm. Then pick the one person you think is most likely to respond based on a tailored note you send.

Craft your message in < 175 words. Format:
1. Connect - tie your story to WHY you love this firm (their focus, a portfolio they invested in, a blog they wrote, etc.);
2. Offer - we will cover this below;
3. Link to (or attach) one supporting item for #2;
4. Ask for 15 min call follow-up or chat about what you've sent*

*You could also offer to do a free or paid project/internship for the firm if they happen to need help (though this might be best saved for a later communication — do what feels right). Share 4-5 times that work for you in a week or two, including the time zone. Ask if they prefer phone or zoom and then offer to send a calendar invite once you hear back. You might even make them a personalized calendly link!

The offer is critical. What could you do for this firm? Some ideas:
💌 — Send them a strong deal that fits their thesis;
💻 — Share proprietary research you have done which they may find interesting / helpful;
📝— Suggest a project you'd complete for the firm based on your experience*

*Projects could be related to marketing, content, tech stack, operations, or investment. Be creative, and tie YOUR experience / interests with the FIRM's focus / needs. This takes time to get right, but you have to connect the dots. This is all about getting a foot in the door.

Some ideas to link to/attach:
— Due diligence analysis you prepare on an interesting deal;
— Fake portfolio you would have invested in if you'd had angel capital to deploy (& why you would have made those investments);

*Keep it brief (

In 2019 a brave team of 10 IndieHackers from Saint-Petersburg, Russia came together to create a product within 48 hours — MetaSurvey, a Tinder-style churn survey!

Badly, like most startups, we encountered many obstacles and almost closed the project. To July 2020 only 2 co-founders left. We started to work 4-6 hours after our desk jobs. We neatly gathered every single community feedback.

After 8 months we launched MetaSurvey 2 — a fully remastered, re-coded, and re-designed version!

Update note:
Here is what we found while working with a list.

— First, it’s not only for Germany but for the whole DACH Region + Austria and Sweden.
— Second, some of them were rebranded. Next47 or Axel Springer is now called Apex. LMU in Munchin is the same as German Accelerator, but they closed selection processes in 2019. Wayra, not even an incubator/accelerator, it’s a VC studio helping startups to launch pilots. Other players are fine 👌🏻
