Retweeted by Fred DestinWow ! European Fintech investments 2014 / 2013 : 5X with $1.1BN invested in 82 companies (per @DJVentureWire).@cvwadored actually pretty deep trend that transcends the bubble. private markets substitute for public it seems.Most of the "visionaries" in tech should really come clean and call themselves "voyeurs". Or samplers. Or remixers.VC exit distribution - M&A vs IPO : ~50/50 for 1990-2000 and~90/10 for 2001-2014Mega-rounds ! Startup fundraisings over $100M never exceeded 30 transactions per year until 2014, where it hit … 82 !!!Properly design centric.

@ScottEdWalker thiel is certainly super talented but these quotes are pretentious imoAwesome review of the innovative work that my ex partner Jeff at @atlasventure has contributed to: http://t.co/HHfhXeLmsA:-) @iRowan: @fdestin Can you share some small tech trends?"
@JamesJWYork fact that most bubble talk focused on wrong things (like hyper scale co's) does not mean there is no bubbleI live to serve others . My goal in life is touch people's lives in a positive way and make a difference. however small, however big.
Retweeted by Fred DestinThe valuation of some start-ups evolves in fast 10x increments. Implies neither investor irrationality nor a bubble.@YeleBademosi it's a light wind not a storm :)@fdestin much better question - “what’s something you know that almost no one else does?"
Retweeted by Fred Destin@bwhalley that's how I write :)I can't think of anything much more boring that asking VC's for "big tech trends". Gray of you like it generic and high level.3/ now these new numbers show what we already knew: 85% of unicorns stuck with their founding CEOs - http://t.co/fmle2JWS862/ sometimes it's just a bit of magic, sometimes it's that incredible determination not to fail. Your culture and your soul.1/ always been a big believer that you lose a lot when you lose your founder as CEOPaying attention ? The NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE invested in Coinbase: http://t.co/N6RJ43sBGfOH: "if you don't go back to an app within 5 days, you're unlikely to ever go back at all" #fbaccel15Bizarre that most press continues to equate success of #bitcoin with its $ value ... - http://t.co/n7LGPix3Ln
Amazing how @Mandiant always manages to get to billing on any serious network intrusion event! http://t.co/W3yyVMJtqF.@ft reports that @CalPERS will cut two thirds of its private equity managers to 120 or less, to cut costs, starting with FoF@fdestin Did said VCs fund the pitch? I mean, kind of unfair to say "super insightful, I'll blog about your secret sauce I didn't fund."
Retweeted by Fred Destin@smenor tx@shefaly yes though vc's rule as writers I'd secondary to their role as investors which gives them privileged access to insightsSerious question : Is it cool for vc's to blog using specific insights they learn from start-up companies who pitch them ?@infoarbitrage great list. Can't decide how ironic.The Bible: learn it’s easier to be told by others what to think and believe thank to think for yourself- http://t.co/jR2QNw9j6X
@lteytelman I've seen the value and backed a bunch, including @PillPack @Kinvey etc. Nice thread from you.Nothing new but a powerful reminder of the cost of multitasking and messaging addiction: http://t.co/dNZYhbWX2NIf a review into the Muslim Brotherhood goes unpublished, it harms the cause of liberal Islam, writes @MelanieLatest http://t.co/CUvTonntiV

Let's both continue to think :)@kittystryker we both did :). Down with racism, oppressive power structures and abuse no matter what. Are on same side of debate.@kittystryker black woman as a monkey ? They are making of the National Front (logo and play of words on party leader). That's who.@kittystryker everyone gets it the same from these guys. Not saying they're tasteful. Just not racist. http://t.co/NTVbf9OIs9@kittystryker final one, but thanks for chat. You need to me on watch for what a powerful radical Islam means. http://t.co/38fdjj5ZFe@kittystryker I think radical Islam is a very strong power. Islam has power. Second largest religion. Religion is a tool of power.@kittystryker i really think there's amisunderstanding. they are anarchist lefties. They lampoon power in all its forms.@kittystryker "anti-racism and a passion for equality among all people are and continue to be the founding principles of Charlie Hebo"
