Best VC Blog Posts – May 28, 2009

Posted in Venture Capital by larrycheng on May 28, 2009

After publishing the Global VC Blog Directory, I thought it’d be appropriate to publish the first of what I hope will be a bi-weekly round-up of the best blog posts from the VCs in the directory (in my personal opinion).  I’m not totally sure yet whether there’s enough good content to do a summary like this every couple of weeks, but if there is that will be the frequency.  So, here it goes (in no particular order):

By the way, after pulling together the directory, here are the firms with the most bloggers:

  • Bessemer Venture Partners (6)
  • First Round Capital (5)
  • Spark Capital (4)
  • Foundry Group (4)
  • Flybridge Capital Partners (3)
  • Ignition Partners (3)

Interesting to see broader firm-wide commitment to blogging.  At some point I may have to chat with some folks at those firms to see how blogging has impacted their firm.

    This is great, thanks Larry. Even for someone in the VC industry, who subscribes to lots of VC RSS feeds, you inevitably overlook some gems. Peter Rip’s post on the evolution of VC returns over last 15yrs was particularly thoughtful.

      Thanks Lee – I will check it out. Maybe I just read it too quickly. I’ll include it in the next one if it’s good. Hopefully we’ll see some content coming from you as well.

    Thanks for posting these. It’s tough to keep up on a ton of VC blogs! It’s awesome that you bring up the ones that you like, because then it gives us entrepreneurs a better idea of what’s on a VCs mind at the moment. I’ll check ‘em out.

    It’s great you are doing this and thanks for the mentions. Although, I’d point out that we have 6 blogs if you count each of our personal blogs, plus http://www.askthevc.com and our corporate blog http://www.foundrygroup.com.

    Just gunning to be high on your list. :)

    Again, many thanks for the mentions.

      Jason -thanks for the feedback. I may update the list shortly as I realized I missed a Foundry Group blog and have gotten a few more submissions from folks. Thanks..
