The fourth episode of the Angel Investing Master Class is here! In this class, Adam Sharp explains the geography of venture capital (VC).
When most people think of startups, they think of Silicon Valley. That’s because the Bay Area (which includes Silicon Valley, San Francisco, San Jose and several other cities in California) is home to tons of big tech companies and the most successful VC firms in the world. And Silicon Valley startups receive a stunning amount of VC investments.
Adam has learned some important lessons about investing both in and outside of the Bay Area. And some of them may surprise you.
