Not Just Investors, But Product Owners
It’s no secret that we verticalize our staff at Equal Ventures. Chelsea is focused on the intersection of retail and supply chain, Simran on Climate and Adam on Insurance. While Rich and I are generalists, each of these individuals spends the vast majority of their time focused exclusively on those spaces.
Equal’s 2023 Research POV
As a concentrated, thesis-driven firm, we spend the beginning of each year in planning mode. We outline the new ideas we’re excited to dive into, others we want to explore and a few that we may no longer be pursuing. The final result is what we call a “hunting list” — a set of theses for which we develop a Prepared Mind. The goal for each thesis we’re “hunting” is to have visibility of every company that aligns with our Prepared Mind — meeting with as many as possible and sharing our internal research with founders along the way.
