In this episode, Hall is joined by Fraser Hall of VFF. Fraser is a lifelong entrepreneur, activist, and technology leader who brings order and calm to fiery situations. He has a wealth of experience founding and operating both bootstrapped and venture-backed businesses – most notably: Article.com and Recon Instruments. Fraser is also a longstanding animal activist who has served as Captain for Sea Shepherd on many campaigns worldwide.
In this episode, you’ll learn how Fraser got into investing and what his focus is as well as what he looks for in a startup. Fraser talks about how he runs a micro vc fund and what they look for specifically. VFF sees about 600 deals a year and actually work with only four or five. Fraser gives insight to his advantage over a vc that has never been an operator. As a founder-led team, you are better equipped to be a recruiter and therapist for CEOs.
