Really great article, we thought we had summarized every data point that's been correlated to venture success but learned a few more through the read. Also learned a few more VC funds to learn from, so thank you.
We recently launched our own machine learning platform, Wendal, which we use to solve a problem called The Million Mile Problem. There are more deals and capital invested in 180 square miles in Silicon Valley compared to over 1 Million Square Miles in the Midwest and Southeast. We used Wendal to find and fund companies because it’s impossible to cover that region with human interaction.
We inform companies of our interest through a 5-minute application process and commit to investments in 10 business days or less.
