Happy Friday Founders + Friends,
With so many new faces getting into early-stage investing, the conversation around the best frameworks to deploy capital and construct a portfolio has been a fun topic to debate. While both strategies have produced great returns, it can be hard for an emerging manager to pick which path is best suited for him.
At Bloom Capital, our early-stage venture fund, we decided to build our portfolio around the index strategy instead of chasing concentration. Given how early we get involved in the 0 to 1 journey with founders across B2B SaaS, Future of Work, FinTech + Digital Health, we wanted to maximize our “shots on goal” with our initial checks while taking advantage of the power-law dynamics that have historically driven returns.
If you had to pick a strategy, how would you go about it?
