Event Driven Growth

A VC: Musings of a VC in NYC

I’ve seen event driven growth spurts over the years. Each situation is different but a framework I like is to take your pre-event baseline, your event driven peak, and assume you will give up half of the delta when things return to normal and that will be your new baseline. That has been true of almost every event driven growth spurt I have seen in my career. I realize that most businesses are suffering greatly in this pandemic. Many have been shut completely.

The Unforeseen Benefits of Online Events

Tomasz Tunguz

In this era, virtual events have replaced IRL events. Virtual events have many obvious benefits. No hotels, no event venues, no catering, no ensuring guests are in the right city at the right time. Many of our portfolio companies have experimented with virtual events quite successfully. An IRL event of 50, when transitioned online, will swell to 250-500 registrants. Of course, virtual events have trade-offs.

Current Events and Math

A VC: Musings of a VC in NYC

If I was teaching math right now, I would be using these events to teach complicated math concepts to my students. Watching the election returns last night made me think about all of the math we are learning in the last year. Now that our elections include different kinds of votes that have different demographics associated with them (mail-in votes, early votes, same-day votes), the absolute numbers move all around as the votes are being counted and reported.

Gust

This is a somewhat tricky question.
