Heyo! Welcome to the MENO Mistakes Podcast…or whatever the hell this classifies as.
MENO mistakes is all about this one big question:
If you could go back in time to the beginning of your career, what piece of advice would you give to your younger self?
This week we have the privilege of talking to one of Silicon Valley’s top Venture Capitalists – Alfred Lin! His current companies include: Airbnb, DoorDash, Houzz, Humble Bundle, Instacart, Kiwi, Moovit, reddit, Stella & Dot, Zipline.
But before he began his journey of investing in and advising at some of the most talked about startups he was an active part of scaling three companies from the founding stages to profitable businesses and through successful acquisitions. The most talked about being Zappos.com – which is where we met ?
For those who know Alfred, you will know that he can’t stay put for a second. He’s hyper-active all over the place, texts with one phone in one hand while simultaneously composing an email with a separate phone in the other. So it only make sense for you to take the career change from a full time operator to a venture capitalist.
