Hero 3177565d164adc79784d468b63bb67e3 medium

Kevin Thau and Jenna discuss how he tries to manufacture serendipity as a VC at Spark Capital. Kevin shares key lessons on how to explain your product with teaching moments when you’re pioneering a new market, the importance and challenge of being disciplined with your product roadmap, and why “more”- money, products, or people - doesn’t solve problems. We also chat about how to resist the reflex to react to a current situation like a past one, why there is no one-size-fits-all model to successfully lead a company, and Kevin’s belief in organized chaos being the best way to get your team in the right place, at the right time, working on the right problem.
