Lindel Eakman (Foundry Group) on investing in Ludlow Ventures and Foundry's mesh network

Lindel Eakman (Foundry Group) on investing in Ludlow Ventures and Foundry's mesh network

Welcome back to another episode of the pod. Today I'm sharing a conversation I had with Lindel Eakman, partner at Foundry Group. 

 

I reached out to Lindel after reading a piece on TechCrunch about how he joined the team to institutionalize their LP investments. Because of what he's built with Foundry Group Next, 80% of their early stage deals come from their partner funds. In this one, we'll spend some time chatting about Foundry's mesh network: how it works and why it's so effective. Towards the end, Lindel and I chat about his recent investment in Ludlow Venture's 4th fund. 

 

As always, here's what we reference (if I miss anything, feel free to bug me about it :))

 

- How Foundry Group expands its network by backing emerging managers

- Sequoia's scout program

- Hip-Hop Managing Money

- Lindel's blog

- Ludlow Ventures

- Venture Deals

- Foundry Group's partner funds 

 

That's all. Enjoy,
