My partners and I have committed to building transparency around how we pick investments, and in general around how we think about things. We believe this practice will be useful to founders looking at Connect as the lead for their seed round. With this intent, I recently published Investing in Oyster. Founders and fellow VCs told me they liked this behind-the-scenes perspective and encouraged me to do this more often.
So my next story is our investment in Bellman, a French startup looking to transform residential property management using software.
The occasion is the recent announcement of new funding led by Lakestar.
