We’re kicking off 2022 with one of our favorite returning guests, Ankur Nagpal, founder of Teachable and Vibe Capital. After selling Teachable last year for $150 million, Ankur created Vibe Capital, a global early-stage generalist fund. He promises to be the "least painful investor you have to deal with" because he knows how founders feel about investing.

Listen to Nathan and Ankur discuss:

  • Why founders prefer investing in other founders
  • Defining IRR (internal rate of return) and why it's a key metric for modern-day investors
  • Why he spends less than a week to decide to invest in a company
  • Why speed is so important when it comes to investing
  • The 3 most important things to look for when investing in a startup
  • His “red flags” when reviewing potential companies to invest in
  • And much more funding advice…
