We don’t think VCs can predict the future. Founders do, because they’re on the cutting edge of innovation in their respective disciplines. We’re fortunate to work with founders who can teach us what’s next.
We do not invest in drugs; and/or adult/NSFW content.
One of our filters for a company is: would we encourage our family members to use the company? We would gladly invest in a drug addiction treatment company, and if we have a family member who is a drug addict, we’ll encourage our relative to become a client of that company. However, we would not invest in a company which sold recreational drugs, because we wouldn’t proactively encourage a family member who is not currently a drug user to use drugs.
