Duncan Davidson Founding Partner Bullpen Capital, the pioneer of Post Seed investing. Previously, two bubble era IPOs (InterTrust and Covad) and two other startups (SkyPilot and Xumii, the first mobile cloud app). Being the pitch person on one of them at the peak of the bubble, I learned firsthand that venture capital is a cyclical business. During the bubble, speed matters; during the downturn, two successful strategies: long-term, deep tech; and short-term, value investing in oversold but otherwise solid companies. Bullpen was crafter for both bull and bear markets. The key: help the companies succeed, not focus on the deal.
