🎶 They call me Slim Shady, I’m back, I’m back… 🎶
Well, actually I’m not. Apologies for the silence the last few weeks, I have taken some time to reflect on the newsletter and all of the other responsibilities I am juggling right now (a company, a fund, an event) and have come to the conclusion that Series F can’t be a priority for me currently.
I don’t know if this will be the last time you will hear from me, perhaps I’ll pick it up again in the future but for now it is indefinitely on hold while I focus my energy on more important endeavours, supporting my portfolio founders (I had none when I started this, I now have seven) finding incredible Nordic entrepreneurs to invest in
and figuring out how my company and event fit into all of this as well.
I would like to say thank you to all of you who have ever shared the newsletter, responded or just read my terrible jokes each week. I have been delighted and very surprised by the amount of positive feedback I have had while writing Series F, which makes it even harder for me to say goodbye. For now at least.
I know some of you reached out to me previously to offer to help out or take over the newsletter and I am happy to hear suggestions in this regard, however, please note that I only ever started and did this for fun and was not doing this with any strategic focus. The fact that I find it more of a chore than fun these days is perhaps a good indication that I am doing the right thing in taking an indefinite break from it for now.
Please do keep in touch with me on firstname.lastname@example.org or @neilswmurray
And thanks for spending your Sundays discussing the future of VC with me 👊🏻
