Quotes

"People have this desire to be entertained and they want something to brag about on the weekends, and have something to talk about with their friends, and being an investor is an element of their personal brand and a little bit of status associated with it."

(3:34) Jesse Randall

 

"They are great businesses and I'm grateful that they have the opportunity to raise money... They just typically don't qualify to raise money for VC funds."

(5:36) - Jesse Randall

 

"[On advice to younger self] I would say, freaking learn how to sell. Number one rule, learn how to sell something."

(34:46) - Jesse Randall
