This week on the Sales Hacker podcast, we speak with Angus Davis, VC and Partner at Foundation Capital.

Angus is an amazing person — who never went to college. After graduating from high school, he moved out to Mountain View to work at Netscape, the first massive modern internet success story, with Marc Andreessen. He founded Tellme Networks, sold it to Microsoft, founded Upserve, and sold it to Vista Equity Partners. Now he's a partner making investments on the VC side at Foundation Capital with over 20 years of operational experience.
