A modern take on what an entrepreneur can, and should, spend their time on

A modern take on what an entrepreneur can, and should, spend their time on

Hello, and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.

This is our Wednesday show, where we niche down to a single person, think about their work and unpack the rest. This week, Natasha interviewed Ankur Nagpal, the entrepreneur behind Teachable, Ocho, and Vibe Capital – Ankur’s $70 million venture fund, raised last year from over 200 investors.

Today, we’re talking about:

  • The future of Solo GPs and Ankur’s choice to shrink Vibe Capital’s fund size
  • How Ankur built, sold, pivoted and launched in public
  • The upside of building in public vs building in private
  • The importance of brand and succession

Of course, we ended with a lightning round of questions – including the meaning behind Ankur’s tattoo.

As always, Alex, Natasha and Mary Ann will be back for our weekly news roundup on Friday, but you can follow us on Twitter @EquityPod for live updates and more.
