The Future of Venture Capital


👋🏻 Happy Sunday!
This is Series F, a (hopefully) insightful weekly curation of the latest developments dictating the future direction of the venture capital industry.
Curated by @neilswmurray
I was travelling a lot this week so unfortunately I’ve had no time to reflect properly and provide an “Upsetting the Apple Cart 🍎” section this week, but still, plenty of interesting links for you to dig into.
Normal service will resume for Issue 50 (!!!) next week.

Due Diligence 📚
1. Some new interesting answers have been provided on the Quora thread ~> How will venture capital change in the next decade?
2. The ICO trend is already being challenged by innovations from within crypto financing, as airdrops become more and more popular, as private pre-sales increasingly become the norm meaning less tokens are available to be sold through public ICOs ~> Blockchain startups are forgoing ICOs to give away free coins in ‘airdrops’
3. Over 91% of decision-makers at U.S. venture capital firms are men, according to a new Axios analysis ~> Venture capital is still a boys club
4. I enjoyed this piece on the 9 verticals that will likely attract more and more VC funding in the not so distant future ~> The do’s and don’t of crafting frontier-tech companies 
5. Fred Wilson: “technologies present themselves as interesting investment opportunities long before they go mainstream and figuring out when they are going to go mainstream is a lot about looking for the right packaging” ~> Pay Attention To The Package
6. A useful primer for everyone in the industry, particularly founders ~> How VCs Get Measured
7. “By providing diversified exposure to a broad range of assets, index funds enable investors to track the performance of an entire asset class, rather than having to select individual assets” ~> Announcing Coinbase Index Fund
Always Be Closing ☕️
All feedback and opinions welcomed: @neilswmurray or neil@thenordicweb.com
Through my Angel Fund, I invest in the most ambitious pre-seed Nordic startups.
In May I will be spending a week in San Francisco 🇺🇸.
I am looking to connect with people who are interested in learning more about or having more exposure to the Nordic and European ecosystem. If that’s you or you know who that is, please do reach out to me! 👊🏻
