Awesome Podcast

This is like a front row seat to many of the colleague to colleague conversations that happen all the time in Silicon Valley. It is a great resource for entrepreneurs and I have found it to be a peek behind the curtain of how VC’s think and what they look for in the applicants. Love the focus on Augmented Reality too!
