Nick Moran (General Partner) @ New Stack Ventures on building influence within venture

  • The best way to help companies in middle America is connecting them to decision makers on the coasts.
  • Teaching people is one of the highest-ROI things you can do.
  • If you’re an outsider, nobody wants to take your call. If you show up with a microphone, everything changes.
  • You can build a fund on influence, but you can’t scale it on that.
  • Established funds have pretty much permanent capital.
