As a startup founder, business jargon and vocabulary tends to grow and expand with experience beyond the mainstays of "product-market fit" and "go-to-market". It isn't until a founder finds themselves deep within their cash flow statements that "churn" can take on new significance.
Our managing partner Omar Hamoui is no stranger to the intricate vocabulary of high-growth startups. A 5x serial entrepreneur -- his 5th company AdMob backed by Sequoia and later acquired by Google -- Omar found himself uncovering a new set of mantras informing his work, first as an entrepreneur and later as a venture capitalist.
Over the many years spent working with companies, he cataloged these lessons learned, with an ever-growing list as new insights emerged.
Today, Omar shares these lessons as short, 3-5 minute videos in a new series of tips we are calling Shorthand For High-Growth Startups. It is our hope that founders will find these tips useful while setting out to build and scale new companies. This video series is currently available as a YouTube playlist beginning with an intro video, then auto-playing the following lessons learned.
We will release a new video to subscribers every Tuesday. You can subscribe to our YouTube channel here and opt-in to receive our newsletter here. If you have any special requests for topics to cover in future videos, send Omar an email: omar [at] mucker [dot] com
