Patrick Gallagher, my partner at CrunchFund, sat down with the folks at Bloomberg today to talk about the fund. You can also watch it on YouTube.
I believe wordpress automatically embeds videos but only if they are on youtube, blip.tv or vimeo.
why don’t invest $1 million of CrunchFund money in Italy to fund 50+ seed startups?
what’s the share you want on a new seed startup to invest $20,000 in it?
Scusa Gaetano .. ma dove arrivi con $20.000 it Italia?
seed fundings are in the $5000-30,000 range everywhere in the world and are enough for a small web startup
Why on earth should Mike and his new startup invest in a rotten, almost bankrupt, country currently ruled by inept, corrupt and disingenuous politicians?
because, good startups, do need CREATIVITY and we have a LOT of it in Italy!
“country currently ruled by inept, corrupt and disingenuous politicians”
99% of worldwide politicians are of the same kind
if we look only at debts, also the USA aren’t so reliable … Germany has overcome Italy in debt/GDP last year and Japan has a debt that is 220% of its GDP
why this blog does not accept my comments as Guest but only as Facebook user?
I have the same questions with you! I hope they will give us an answer togher.
I suppose I have got my answer, they asked the name you have entered should be an email.
I missed meeting him at Disrupt (saw him but he was always busy). Oh well next time.
Looking forward to seeing you up here at UW this weekend Mike
You can embed it. Right side of the video you have the embed code.
> (As far as I can tell there’s no way to embed the video)
Did you miss the big Embed button when you hover of the button to get the script?
I sure did. duh. thank you.
ack. actually it doesn’t work on wordpress.com. strips out the script.
It appears wordpress only support certain embedding so not your fault 🙂
Use a video converter, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help in the near future with Uncrunched, would love to help you with technical issues.
just paste rhe url of the video without any markup… no other text the line.
WordPress dude? This might help?
rofl good link chris
Maybe one day we will have the luxury of working with Crunchfund. Just getting out feet wet now 😀 Good stuff.
Tiny bloopers like this (failing to embed a video) adds flavor to your new blog, Mike. Just shows that you really are on your own on this, doing everything yourself 🙂
Or was this done on purpose to try and emulate that you are doing it on your own….hahaha totally kidding. Really enjoying the new blog so far and even the errors that come with it!
Pat was my first mentor & office mate in the vc world @ MSVP back in Summer of ’98! Mike & Pat – you guys make a great team, wish you all the best!
Was lucky enough to run into and meet Patrick at Disrupt. Best of luck to you guys! The world will be watching….
just a thought: CrunchFund Incubator 🙂 Crunchinbator !
For embeding in wordpress we use embedly (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/embedly/), it’s very easy to set up and works like a charm with almost any video service you through at it.
Did he ever star in a porn movie?
Lol.. guys pls spare Arrington & YouTube in WordPress video.
I guess it works differently at TechCruch. Hehehe… #sinisterMe
A strong point was made in the post video about companies launching in your living room. I have lived off of double cheese burgers for a while now while building our startup (pirate, maybe) and now with the product close to completion WSGR has taken us as clients w/equity but I am itching to pitch you for validation.
If you can PM a time or a place or anything (are there any tall buildings in pacific nw for a elevator ride?)…. I have two companies that are pre-launch/unique but more than that I want to be able to pitch the entrepreneur and be validated by someone who has seen or heard of most of them.
Hope CrunchFund can grow its reputation up the level of YC within 3 years!
Iˇll immediately take hold of your rss feed as I can not find your email subscription link or e-newsletter service. Do you have any? Please permit me recognize in order that I may subscribe. Thanks.
arrington, here’s my advice: SAVE YOUR MONEY. do not pump them down into shady investments, such as shaker, you can very easily end up with no money very very soon. literally, go out and buy an apartment complex or something
