Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions. Here are mine.
1: Since you’re an avid mobile gamer, do you know “Out There: Omega”? If you don’t, please send me your email (the one linked to your AppStore account) and I’ll send it to you as a gift. It’s a must-try!
2: With the help of communities like Hackernoon, we can see a very diverse, new crowd of developers/entrepreneurs rising from pretty much anywhere, and from any background.
As a startup, you can find talented people to join your ranks that could be on the other side of the planet. Talent that’s probably much cheaper than in hot areas like SF.
Yet, I don’t see that many (if any) VCs funding distributed teams. VCs are still very “local”. Why so, when they could fund teams, regardless of their location, that can be super talented and be much more capital efficient?
And by capital efficient, I mean the same amount of capital would give 24 months of runway where it would only be 12 for a non-distributed startup.
NB: I’m not talking about having a team of cheap contractors. I mean real co-founders, who chose to live in an area where life is just better & much cheaper than say SF.
