Re: What a New VC's Goals Look Like: Homebrew's First Two Years - http://hunterwalk.com/2015...
"my experience suggests that it's a mixture of (a) are you 'successfully' executing the strategy you suggested and what changes have you made (where success is qualitative and nearterm IRR, quality of co-investors, etc) (b) what is the marketplace saying about you - another round of diligence w founders, investors, etc (c) sound strategy for fund II" - hunter walk

Re: New Homebrew Investment Pillow Lets Short-Term Rental Hosts & Guests Sleep Easy - http://hunterwalk.com/2015...
"Michael Frank asked me via Twitter: 1) were you worried about the possibility airbnb expands into this space? 2) why pillow over other startups in the space? The data shows that Pillow is an especially complementary player for the short-term rental platform -- they've had especially interesting success in bringing new homes to these platforms, adding a tremendous amount of incremental value. Pillow stood out to us because of the entrepreneurial experience of the founders building an on-the-ground operational marketplace and their longterm vision for the software and brand components of Pillow." - hunter walk
