Extended Class Session with Dave McClure of 500 Startups


Published on

500 Startups founding partner Dave McClure reveals the investment strategy that's made him one of Silicon Valley's most recognizable, and controversial, venture capitalists. He was a guest speaker in Lecturer Rob Siegel's Entrepreneurship: Formation of New Ventures class on October 23, 2014.

Topics discussed include:
• Why McClure believes the traditional venture capital industry is ripe for disruption.
• How betting on the underdog can pay off.
• Why it's important to leave the Silicon Valley bubble to find innovative new business ideas.
• How chasing elusive "unicorns" and "thunder lizards" can lead to bad investment decisions.
• And how an entrepreneur’s personality can help or hinder achieving their vision.
