Welcome to episode 4 of Tribe Talkin', by Tribe Global Ventures, the B2B VC.
We discuss the next episode in the series 'Founder', which showcases Fred Schebesta, the founder of comparison website, Finder, which sees 10million visits globally each month.
We discuss the painful journey some founders often go through on their path of self-discovery, and the consequences of this journey for themselves and those around them. Within this we look at rule breaking as a common entrepreneurial pattern, as well as a tendency to sometimes blow shit up, physically, and metaphorically.
We discuss an article on Equity Crowd funding that puts forward an argument that people may be being taken advantage off, especially with very high valuations. We unpack why this may not be true.
We talk about telco’s wanting to start charging content providers like Netflix for internet usage in addition to the end subscriber who are already paying. A trick that seems to be like asking car companies to pay for the roads the cars they make are driving on.
Finally, we discuss a recent by Ronan Farrow article that discusses the significant power wielded by entrepreneurs, as they scale their businesses much faster than regulation can keep up. Specifically, this article looks at Elon Must hand his interactions in the Russia/ Ukrainian conflict, and how this single person holds entire countries in the palm of his hand.
