Ready to get your brain back in action? Nothing too crazy, just a couple of interesting pieces on EU accelerators & VC fund decks to get the ball rolling!
How the first European accelerators influenced what we do today and my personal accelerator journey
"The way these initiatives broke down walls, blurred borders, and ignored hierarchies was striking.

VC fund decks that close LPs
"In our last edition, we shared advice on how to raise from LPs. In this edition, we’re going a step deeper by sharing examples of 13 pitch decks that successfully raised over $500M from LPs in aggregate. In this post, we link to full decks (a picture is worth a thousand words, right?) and summarize patterns, tips, and best practices."
