Jason Shuman (Primary Ventures) on investing in Latch, maniacal focus, and NYC seed trends

Jason Shuman (Primary Ventures) on investing in Latch, maniacal focus, and NYC seed trends

This week, a massive welcome and congratulations to Primary Ventures' newest partner, Jason Shuman

 

Jason and I travel way back to kick things off, chatting about how driving for Uber and sourcing deals for NYC investors led to his first VC gig at Corigin Ventures (now Alpaca). We also take a look at where the NYC seed market is at and why deal size/valuations are on the rise. In the later half of this episode, Jason and I take a look at his investment in Latch. Another episode with close to perfect timing, as Latch went public just before our recording date. 

 

Here's what we reference:

- OnDeck

- Primary Ventures

- Alpaca Ventures

- Primary's NYC Q4 Seed Report

- Latch

- Latch goes public via SPAC

 

That's all. Enjoy, 

CR
