Weekly Newsletter: $200M Headed to Entrepreneurs, VCs’ Vanity, & Summer Vacation Plans

May 12, 2022

Times of Entrepreneurship IRR Is A Vanity Metric New Builders co-author and leading venture capitalist Seth Levine takes a straightforward look at VCs’ use of the internal rate of return as a measure of early fund performance. Take it with a grain of salt, he says. The Pandemic Showed Us What Works Three ideas for investments in infrastructure to make us healthier. Living the dream ???? Buzzworthy The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and founding sponsor FedEx are launching a fund to provide $5,000 to small businesses affected by disaster, like hurricanes, that are happening more frequently and with more intensity. Small businesses need to get themselves into the database ahead of time, because the grants will be doled out geographically. More information  here. Best Practices Entrepreneur and former Google exec Lars Perkins was tapped to help Portland, Maine, become a tech hub. In a Times of E interview last year, he offered his advice to entrepreneurs getting started: “Don’t fall in love with your idea,” he said. It’s important to be open to learning customers’ needs and shifting business models to fit that. The business idea is less important than the team. “What we’re really looking for is a team that can come in and learn from the experience.” He also notes founders ought to have grit. “Startups aren’t for the faint of heart,” he said. “They are all consuming, and you have to be ready for something which is not a job, but a way of life, at least for a period of time. So, you really have to love what you’re doing because you’re going to be doing it a lot. What I’m Reading $200M For Minority Entrepreneurs: The Kauffman Foundation  invested $10 million in a planned $100 million fund  that will be invested with fund managers of color. The idea is that fund managers of color will be more likely to invest in entrepreneurs of color. This week, LISC also  announced a $100 million fund  for entrepreneurs of color. LISC is a non-profit finance institution. __________________ I’ve been working on a story about redemption in American life (it’ll be published on Forbes soon). As I was reading some business thinkers on the big questions, I came across Clay Christensen’s classic piece in Harvard Business Review on  how to measure your life. PayPal and Venmo fees are rising . A lot of fintechs got big by promising their fees were lower for services provided by traditional financial companies. But it’s tricky to get the incentives in finance right – and over time, the fees tend to drift up. And this powerful quote, which I found in USA Today, from Tony Allen, the president HBCU Delaware State University. The school’s women’s lacrosse team was traveling home when the bus was stopped by local police in Georgia and the team’s bags searched, ostensibly for drugs. “It should not be lost on any of us,” Allen wrote, “how thin any day’s line is between customary and extraordinary, between humdrum and exceptional, between safe and victimized. That is true for us all but particularly so for communities of color and the institutions who serve them. The resultant feelings of disempowerment are always the aggressors’ object.”   1.
