Ben’s List 32


Look this week I’m only sharing 4 articles but I definitely read a lot more. Probably getting busy with the return of in-person gatherings and – I can’t f*****g wait – real events?!

Good thing is that the quality of these 4 pieces is high, it tackles a bunch of web3 & NFT news – have you minted one already? – as well as a detailed analysis of the rise of solo GPs and new VC funds.

Bonus: we got the list of (US) companies where a job means huge upside based on their current growth. The career-launching companies list.

Sesamers should be on the list.

Venture Capital

A Strategic Allocation to Newer GPs

“Newer firms are often unburdened by legacy ways of thinking. Further, it is often a new insight or approach that is the driving reason for the firm’s creation. New thinking and approaches within an organization that is built for the current investment environment (and not some past investment environment) can prove a substantial advantage. Newer firms also have far fewer legacy assets to manage, and so can devote greater time and attention to current opportunities.”



The 2021 Career-Launching Companies List

“Where you work matters. Many people flock to the tech industry because of the potential to make a meaningful impact on the world — and the hope that while doing so they will get to benefit from an IPO. While the chance of becoming an overnight millionaire is fairly slim, joining the right company early in your career can unlock a world of opportunities and set you up for long-term financial success.”


A Guide to Ecofriendly CryptoArt (NFTs)

“Selling work on a blockchain can be a technically challenging task. For this reason, many platforms and websites have emerged aiming to make this process as seamless and easy as possible for artists. Unfortunately, many of these websites are based on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, which is very inefficient and ecologically costly by design.”

Gaby’s Web3 Reading List

“Crypto moves really quickly, and it can be hard to keep up. I’m using this list to save the interesting articles I read about web3.”
