Episode 9 – Resetting Funding with Early Stage VC Sumeet Shah
For today’s show, host Laura Mignott (Founder, experiential marketing agency Digital Flash) is joined by venture capitalist Sumeet Shah (@PE_Feeds), Principal at Brand Foundry Ventures. Sumeet relates his colorful path to the VC world, and the early stage firm’s focus on low tech to high tech consumer companies. With keen honesty and insight, he addresses the VC world’s focus on younger founders and its attempts to embrace more diversity. And if that’s not enough, you’ll hear about his superior meatball game as well as a recent foray he has undertaken to visit diners across the country and interact with folks from all walks of life. Not to mention a shoutout for Lower East Side NYC joint Whitman’s cheese-stuffed burgers.
