Founders tips - Issue #83
By Id4 ventures • Issue #83 • View online
We are back online, first of all, thank you all for being Founders tips subscribers. We started this newsletter almost 2 years ago, with one thing in mind the more our Id4 portfolio companies’ founders will learn about how to grow their startups, the more they gonna be successful.
We kept it open to everyone as we believe sharing and openness are key in our industry.
For the past 2 weeks, we are thinking about what next: what can we improve to help you learn more and make you read more.
If you have any suggestion, please do reach out at
Your feedback will be much appreciated.
This week, a lot of good stuff again.
Our personal favorite is: For Fundraising, Seed is No Longer a Round, It’s a Phase from Hunter Walk. Let’s not be obsessed with rounds categorizations. Yes, very early stage is a phase, even I should say a process to achieve replicable sales and scale.
Tweets from Elizabeth Yin are really insightful: Metrics, metrics, and metrics
Some thoughts on metrics. The best Founders, I’ve ever backed have all been incredibly metrics driven
scrolls down to find those articles and other great ones.
Take the time to read, enjoy your week.

1) Some thoughts on metrics. The best founders I've ever backed have all been incredibly metrics driven (there are other important qualities of great founders too, but you cannot be a great founder without being metrics driven IMO).
