Good episode? Give it some love!
We chat with Peter Rojas (@peterrojas), partner in betaworks ventures, about how his background as a serial entrepreneur and co-founder of Engadget and Gizmodo led him into the venture capital world. We talk about betaworks and their investing philosophy, the VR/AR companies in their portfolio (Against Gravity, Viro, and BOOM.TV), and why they have invested in them. We dig deep into the differences between venture capital and other sources of funding, Peter gives tangible advice to founders seeking capital, we talk about virtual reality headset sales numbers, and why perhaps we’re wrong about what makes for great VR - http://roj.as/
