David Waxman and Minnie Ingersoll are partners and investors at TenOneTen, an early stage venture fund in LA. They talk with LA based VCs and friends about the rapidly growing Los Angeles tech scene.
Marcos Gonzalez -- Vamos Ventures
Marcos Gonzalez is the managing partner at Vamos Ventures, a seed-stage venture fund investing in Hispanic and diverse founders.
Over half of LA county is Hispanic. Seems like a great time to be investing in this community!
Arjan Schutte -- Core Innovation Capital
Great discussion with Arjan Schutte about democratizing prosperity and running Core Innovation Capital, a fintech fund that measures its impact on society and has invested in Ripple, NerdWallet, Synapse, Fundera and more.
Mark Suster -- Upfront Ventures
Mark Suster from Upfront explains why the best time to talk to founders about fundraising is 3-4 months after their last fundraise.
He was kind enough to share that framework and others this week on LAV. #longla
Petra Griffith -- Wedbush Ventures
One of my new favorite LA investors, Petra Griffith, joins to discuss Wedbush Ventures.
Petra talks about starting a new fund, how she's seen venture debt work well as non-dilutive funding, and lessons on the content business from Netflix and Yahoo.
Bruce Hallett -- Miramar Digital Ventures
Bruce's new $100M fund, Miramar Digital Ventures II, invests early in software and data. He explains why many VCs have gone back to preferring notes over SAFEs, and other insights on deal preferences and construction.
Buck Jordan -- WaveMaker Labs
Lots of insights on equity crowdfunding today from Buck Jordan. He's raising $50-100k/day (mostly on SeedInvest) for the cool robotics and food companies coming out of WaveMaker Labs.
He also has great insights on corporate innovation and how seed stage companies can take advantage of corporate partners.
