I try whenever possible to meet the founders prior to investment. There are some cases where there have been logistical challenges that have not allowed that. That being said, I believe it’s our business the know not only the business, but most importantly, the people. Eric Schmidt once told me, “Life is who you travel with.” I couldn’t agree with that statement more. The reason I invest is not to make money or to “change the world”; it is to meet and spend time with bright, creative, innovative, driven people that care about other people. Making money and changing the world is the exhaust of care and compassion for other people, and the ingenuity and guts to do something about it.
