Fortunately, institutional investors in Brazil now understand that they must have a better, diversified portfolio across all asset classes.
I have made 30+ trades in the past 18 months using over US$100K in margin. Interesting to see that margin soared this year. It can be quite useful.
One should only invest in inevitable founders. A good investment is the one that needs you the least but gets to the final destination faster once we partner.
Founders and investors must understand that the vast minority of companies are supposed to be venture-backed, not the opposite.
I struggled with how I should react & respond to cold emails in the workplace during the first two years of my career as a VC.
Once a week, right after a formal turndown, I get a founder asking me if I can introduce them to other investors. This is a weak and stupid ask.
