My name is Anton (some call me Tony) and last couple years I have spent at a venture capital firm.
By industry standards, I am noob. VC is a marathon, not a sprint, and unlike most businesses learning curve doesn't flatten in six-twelve months.
Couple years of at VC firm and a failed start-up experience surely don't make a great expert on how to run a business. However, looking back over at almost a decade of finance career (from valuation to stock picking to investing personally and other's people money) and having talked with over a thousand entrepreneurs some thoughts are asking to be spilled in the universe and can perhaps help some in their journeys.
I am a father of 2 daughters and it sure feels like running couple startups simultaneously.
Whenever I get a chance, I love piano jazz improvisation.
