On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes David Goldberg, General Partner at Alpaca VC.
Headquartered in New York, New York, Alpaca VC is a seed-stage venture capital firm that believes that layering technology over daily life transforms how the real world works so they invest in the people, products, and processes that power commerce in the physical world.
Led by a diverse team of company builders, operators, and analytical thinkers, Alpaca develops a repeatable playbook to help its entrepreneurs most efficiently progress from Seed to Series A.
Prior investments include Compass, Transfix, Latch, Wheels Up, Imperfect Foods, and Firstbase.
After coming off his own entrepreneurial journey as Founder/CEO of FreshNeck, David joined Alpaca in 2014. He relies on empathy and personal experience to form deep bonds with founders and add value where it matters most. David enjoys partnering with startups on high-level strategy and building scalable ‘operating systems’ consisting of structured priorities and OKRs. Some of David’s past investments on behalf of Alpaca include Latch, Transfix, Imperfect Foods, Minibar, FirstBase, and Monument.
Before getting the startup bug, David spent his early career in finance and law at the University of Miami and Fordham University. He spent three years as an Assistant District Attorney, representing the people of New York, and following that, spent three years across Merrill Lynch and Jefferies & Co.
David discusses his investment thesis and some of the challenges entrepreneurs and investors face.
