The Future of Pre-seed Investing

Futurist Trond Arne Undheim interviews Magnus Grimeland, CEO and founder of Antler, the early-stage VC. We talk about trigger points to achieve greatness, promising startups, the globalization of venture capital, the importance of finding founders with drive, spike, and grit. We also discuss the future of work.

 

The takeaway is that the future of pre-seed investing is changing by globalizing and moving beyond the old startup hotspots and into places like Amsterdam, Oslo, Sydney and Nairobi. VC is also maturing and moving away from the US-concept of an elevator pitch and seeks a deeper understanding of the founder, validating the startup idea and building a product by bringing in talent and networks across markets.
