Interview begins: 5:16

Debrief: 43:55

This week we’re revisiting CC058, a coffee chat with Peter Livingston of Unpopular Ventures. In this episode, we explored syndicate investing.

Unpopular Ventures is led by Peter Livingston, whose experience is almost entirely in startups – as both an operator and investor. He was the first engineer at iRhythm (IPO 2016) and was the founder/CEO at Lifesquare (backed by Kleiner Perkins).

He has been angel investing since 2013, made >150 investments to date, and has produced investment returns well within the top decile of VC industry performance.

Peter founded Unpopular Ventures to keep investing in startups – but with a bigger family, bigger checks, and bigger impact.

We discuss:

  • Disagreeing about corporate VCs (9:11)
  • Syndicate Model (13:37)
  • Investors and the syndicate (16:13)
  • Not following the traditional fund (26:35)
  • Building trust (31:25)
  • Edification (39:23)
