I interviewed Sunny Dhillon, Associate Signia VC @C2SV. Signia is an early stage fund set up June 2012. They focus on Seed & Series A investing in a wide range of sectors inc mobile. Some focus areas happen to be gaming, ad tech, customization of the enterprise, ecommerce. He’s passionate about making an impact, to work with companies who are making an impact on how we interact with each other, how we interact with the environment. He likes to work with entrepreneurs who are the brightest people in the room, getting smarter by talking to smart people. He spoke about what a great learning experience it has been going to LP’s for their fund. They have a great team, a great story & track record. He spoke about the changes to the vc industry: the cost of setting up a business, particularly a mobile one is significantly lower than its ever been. You have platforms that provide services like Twilio or Sendgrid that would have required a great amount of capital previously. From the investment perspective having a lot more access & democratization to financing process. A lot of what was once esoteric knowledge around the venture industry is now becoming much more commoditized & available. A lot of VCs do a great job of blogging & being very open. Brad Feld, Foundry Group & Mark Suster, Upfront Ventures is a great example. Also Angellist & what Naval Ravikant is doing there is great to paint a picture that this is something that can happen anywhere not just Silicon Valley.
