#199 - Peter Livingston, Unpopular Ventures - All My Best Investments Were The Ones I Couldn’t Get Anyone Else To Do

70 minutes

In episode 199 we welcome our guest, Peter Livingston. Peter and Meb spend some time on Peter’s background and his experience as an engineer and a founder.

They then dive into venture capital investing and Peter’s thoughts on the corporate VC model. That leads right into Peter’s early investment experience in private companies and trying to raise a fund of his own.

Peter explains that trying to raise a fund led him to a unique place and a perspective on the traditional VC model that ultimately was the origin behind his firm, Unpopular Ventures. He spends time explaining why he feels the syndicate model is superior to the VC model, and the rapid pace of growth he’s experienced since launch.

Meb then asks Peter to get into some of the investments he’s made.

As the conversation winds down, Peter touches on his thoughts for the future.

All this and more in episode 199.
