T/s (95%).The French social system is a giant unsustainable swindle perpetrated by French people on their own youth.

Thematic research + new products Launch tracking etcMethods that do not count as being introed: (a) friendly Fb message (b) tweet w/ smiley (c) flattery (d) LinkedIn InMail: "dear Marc"Number of startups we have backed that came in from unsolicited email : exactly zero. Unpleasant fact, but fact.Test #1: find co-founders; test #2: get an intro to VCs; test #3: raise finance and build a business. Sure you can get past #2 !

@robinwauters ah sorry I hesitated !@umairh misnomer of the decade for sure. How tech loves to make itself look touchy-feely.@TheWeek @pegobry eg a bit rich to simplify secular philosophy and psychology to being focused only on the individual ... etc@TheWeek @pegobry eg behind the communist wall religion was repressed - it didn't "reappear" after the fall of the wall ...@TheWeek @pegobry eg humans became more murderous thanks to mass killing technology - hardly because they lost religion@TheWeek @pegobry I normally love reading you but this article is conceptually unusually inconsistent. Wish there was a comments section.Apparently religion is the only way to express universal human values as a society. Yay. https://t.co/DVHfe06wQjWe might finally have a strong European tech startup database - thank you @robinwauters and @TechEU: http://t.co/J4FOI18mYA@SYSTEP evolution is a better wordVote for @Accel @TheEuropas : Supercell, Spotify, BlaBlaCar, WorldRemit, FundingCircle, Deliveroo, Wallapop etc http://t.co/wUN9yf1uFhVote now for @TheEuropas - only one day left to choose Europe's best in startup land ! http://t.co/FZsnNYSrjtHum... https://t.co/z3ir0bJpXQ@sravish must be a lot of corporates in the room :-)For all the talk of VC disruption (guilty), there seems to be an awful lot of money flowing into funds !Unicorn valuations are fleeting, memorable narratives are not, says @msuster: http://t.co/xdF5T2gQUlCapital = Global.
