  • 38. FAQ
  • 39. FAQ Why did you not focus exclusively on industry-specific tools and/or problems? 1.Including only VC/PE focused tools would substantially limit the list of solutions considered and I was keen to be as inclusive as possible to make sure it represents “all the tools being used”. Beyond that, I also believe this is a great opportunity to discover how certain tools are being use in less obvious ways - these small “hacks” can be extremely useful for us all. 2.Focusing on VC/PE questions and problems would be a limitation I wasn’t keen on having since I wanted the form and this report to provide a starting point answer to the question: "I am starting a fund tomorrow, what tools should I consider for my stack?” Why wasn’t the form anonymous? 1.I wanted to reduce the risk of data manipulation by making sure the information was submitted by the real person. The hack I have found for this edition was to, once the form was submitted, send a confirmation email to the email indicated. This approach also reduces the likelihood of the same person submitting the form multiple times. 2.I was keen to give an easy way for the person taking the time to contribute to get the final report straight in their email inboxes and get access to future similar activities (forms, reports, events, etc.)
