Had a lovely week spent with the family and at weddings. Enjoying the beautiful summer weather we have in the UK.

News story of the week from Nas’ VC firm, Queensbridge Venture Partners:
2014:
- Nas invests in PillPack (through his VC company)
- Nas invests in Dropbox
2015
- Nas invests in Ring
2018:
- Amazon buys Ring & PillPack (paying $1 billion for each)
- Dropbox IPO (valuation of $11.03 billion at IPO)

This brings me joy as I wrote an article about Nas as an investor over a year ago now (you can read it HERE).
