@MattOcko is the Co-Managing Partner and Co-Founder @DCVC and has over 3 decades of experience as a tech entrepreneur and VC and has made investments in the likes of Facebook, Zynga, Uber and AngelList just to name a few. If that was not enough he is also an inventor on over 40 granted or in process patents. A truly deep thinker and one of my fave ever shows to record. Huge thanks to @abrams @cdouvos for the introduction. In Today’s Episode with Matt You Will Learn: How Matt made his way into VC and came to co-found Data Collective? Why does Matt believe “All Fund Size Models are Wrong”. Does the current bifurcation of VC into angels/micro-VCs, small seed/A funds, big bruisers, and post-C/pre-IPO make for sub-optimal returns both on a societal and monetary perspective? What does the opportunity fund allow Data Collective? How do they use the initial fund to invest for insight in into companies at the earliest stages? How do they avoid the negative signalling risk that is normally ensued with an opportunity fund? How important is thesis driven venture firms? Does specialisation aid or hinder venture returns and why? How does Matt view the lifecycle of current venture? Matt has previously said it is inherently inefficient, why?

Awesome @harrystebbings ! So timely and relevant to recently concluded cybersecurity conference "DEFCON" in Las Vegas. @mattocko was a panelist in DEFCON 21 and has invested in many security companies, thanks to his contributions - the internet is little more secure now.
