Our guest today is Nick Moran, General Partner of New Stack Ventures. Nick is also the host of The Full Ratchet podcast. The Full Ratchet was one of my inspirations for founding The Consumer VC, so this was pretty surreal for me.
Why he left corporate America to invest in startups
The founding of The Full Ratchet
Evolving his investment structure from syndicates to a venture capital fund
Why he’s bearish on Web3 short-term, but bullish long-term
What consumer technology companies can learn from enterprise SaaS businesses
What he means by “investing in outsiders”
I hope you enjoy listening.
