Welcome to Ask the VC

We’ve started this site to discuss relevant issues in the venture capital and entrepreneurial ecosystem.  As you may know, we’ve spent a lot of time over the past three years writing about venture capital and entrepreneurship on Brad’s blog (Feld Thoughts). We’ve had great feedback regarding our regular posts on matters that effect people in our industry, as well as our blog series on topics such as term sheet, mergers and acquisitions, and 409A.  We’ve also had a lot of fun and learned a lot from the questions that people have asked us.

We’ve decided to put more focused effort into regularly addressing these questions. Brad will still blog about venture capital and entrepreneurship, and we’ll occasionally cross-post between blogs, but we’ll begin to use Ask the VC to address the steady stream of questions we are now getting on a daily basis from entrepreneurs around the world.

You can expect the same thoughtful and honest opinions that we’ve always had.  We will also tackle bigger issues in a larger format than a single post.   Our goal is that this blog becomes a broadly used informational source on venture capital and entrepreneurship.  To achieve this, we welcome (and encourage) questions from anyone reading this and hope that “meaty” questions lead to better and more relevant content for our readers. 

So “Ask the VC” and fire away!  We look forward to the dialogue and getting to know you.
