When seed stage venture capitalist Hunter Walk is evaluating whether to invest in a company, he doesn’t look at the product. To him, it’s all about finding a great team. This philosophy has helped him make investments in some of the top startups today, such as theSkimm, Shyp, and Joymode. Before Homebrew, he worked at YouTube, Google & Second Life, and even worked for a time on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. In this episode, Hunter explains why Conan was the first startup he worked for, how he identifies great companies when there’s no data to evaluate, and the three factors every company needs to be successful when taking VC funding.
