My next post — relatively few companies at Volta have participated in other programs. I don’t think it matters if they did. The purpose or value of most of those is enhance the local network. The quality is likely a good signal to noise ratio. If you have a place that has 10/20 YC alumni around you, that is pretty good. Alternatively, if 1 out of 50 make it to an A round… then the network is not so good because that is a worse ratio that doing nothing.
