Dedicated to early stage Startups by @ivanpetrovic & @hervecuviliez

This week ,

First, one announcement, we are proud to be part of the Nordic Web Ventures Fund II run by the great Neil Murray. Here’s the article in tech crunch.

This fund investment fit right into our strategy to be deeply involved in the very early stage European ecosystem. Here our view on this: We love pre-seed stage investing in Europe, and we are going to do everything we can to support it.

Other fund investments will come.

Back to reading ;)

In the better company section, Customer Churn is Everyone’s Problem made me rethink how customer success should be approached inside the company. Must read, if you ask me (especially if you are part of our portfolio ;)

In the better you section, a great exercise to do from Brad Feld : Three Year Future Org Chart Exercise. It will force you to plan the evolution of your organization to align with your strategic vision.

An interesting counter-intuitive point of view from Mark Suster in the understand better VC section about data rooms, and more broadly about how to engage with VCs after the first meeting.

Great summary from Louis Coppey @Point nine of the different stages a founder will go through, see the tweet of the week.

Fascinating podcast about What The Tech Stock Bubble Looked Like In the 17th Century - time well spent and important to learn from history.

Finally, a good question about the future of web development and its quest for speed: Is WebAssembly the web GUI Future?

Very simple but the journey of a startup looks as follow:
1. Founder Market Fit
2. Product Market Fit
3. GoTo Market (Market) Fit
=> 🚀
We build conviction on 1, we invest between 1 and 2, we do our best to help founders get to 2... and to 3.
