David Rosenthal and Ben Gilbert are venture capitalists and hosts of the Acquired podcast. Acquired is one of my favorite shows. In it, David and Ben tell stories of great companies in technology with thorough research and a fun, engaging style.   Our conversation kicks off the mini-series with their respective backgrounds in venture, the creation of Acquired, and their research process for show. We then dive into the origins of the cottage venture capital industry, inflection point after the tech bubble, rise of an abundance of capital, firms investing across stages, the competitive response of others, the mass introduction of angel investors, businesses staying private for longer, and the potential for crypto to change the game once more.   Whenever we’re set with this (or when you tell me to), I’ll send the next 5 episodes along.

This was a terrific episode giving colour & context on venture & its evolution. There is a large section on the early history of venture & how it evolved. The venture nerd in me geeked out! Part of the Venture is Eating the Investment World series that @tseides is releasing.
