The Definitive Podcast about Angel and Venture Investing

Nick Moran has done a truly remarkable job in creating and producing a consistently interesting and useful series that has become the contemporaneously historical record of the industry. His audience of the world’s leading angels and VCs listen to it religiously to keep up with people, funds and trends in the industry, and I’ve lost count of the number of times that I have followed up with business deals based on guests he has interviewed. If you want to truly know what is happening in the startup financing world, The Full Ratchet is a must-listen.
