Investors: east coast vs west coast stereotypes

January 4, 2018

Caya: Is there a difference between West Coast vs East Coast investing?

Andrew: I still feel like there's a slightly different mindset. Like I joke around that there are these the "West Coast A rounds", "East Coast A rounds" and the"Midwest A rounds".

What's a seed in one place, is an "A Round" somewhere else. That's part of it, there's a little bit of grade inflation, then there's also a little bit more of the 'don't worry about monetizing', you know, 'aim for the bleachers'.

But, that's more of a stereotype, there's some truth to it, but I don't tell my founders to pitch any different.
