The Venture Brief is a place for founders, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs striving to gain an insight into the minds of the best in the business. We do not so much care about the success itself, but rather about the principles, habits, values, and thoughts of the ones who contribute the most. We get personal; unveiling, decoding, and demystifying the people who we thought to be superhuman. We bring a holistic point of view of what the entrepreneurial landscape looks like, and we take you on a journey that will provide you with glimpses of what the future holds.
