Thank you for writing this post. I do want to raise an issue here though.
“The issue that the venture capital industry faces is that it lacks a good HR function that covers what happens between venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.”
Travis Kalanick tweeted that he wanted to meet Chris Sacca at a strip club. He called Uber “boober” in an actual interview, because he was getting so much play from it. That’s behavior I would expect from a high school student, but hey, the guy got $15 billion. So what do I know?
HR is not responsible for educating VCs about these obvious red flags.
