VC Tip Of The Day

Last week I saw my friend Bryce, a partner at OATV in SF, twittering VC tips like this one:

vc tip-o-the day: if you’re not funny, don’t use humor in your pitch.
vc meetings aren’t the best venue for trying out new material.

Being obsessed with twitter bots, I immediately thought, "this would be a great twitter bot". And so I sent Bryce a message to that effect. He liked the idea but we weren’t sure how to set it up so that the only people who could post to the bot would be real venture investors.

We turned to Whitney who built the lotd and shakeshack bots and he came up with a slight modification and voila, vctips was created.

Bryce announced the creation of vctips on his tumblog this morning. He’s invited a bunch of VC’s to join the posting group and any others who would like to join should contact Bryce. This is his sandbox, we just get to play in it.

If you want to follow along, just join twitter and then go to this page and hit follow. This should be fun and informative.
