Not surprising to see so much engagement here @ZacharyAarons is presenting, particularly as he's also crushing it on the hand gestures. If I were an institutional LP I would have FOMO for @MetaPropNYC from this photo alone. GET IT METAPROP! #longnytech #longproptech
The high priest of #PropTech sharing market trends and insights during the @MetaPropNYC Annual Limited Partners Meeting in #NYC. #NYCRETW

PeopleOps done well is *such* an advantage over time for a hypergrowth startup thinking of this team as just "HR" is as outdated as legacy companies calling engineering the "IT Department"

Huge fan of this team: they lead with caring deeply and having gratitude & empathy for each other, and for the founders and teams in their orbit. Not sure what “list” captures these special qualities and their impact, but I’d put @Bread_ButterVC as tops.
📷 @Bread_ButterVC holiday dinner. They say you are the sum of who you spend your time with & boy did I hit the jackpot. It feels like we have worked together for years. So grateful to call such brilliant, caring, fun loving people my colleagues & fam @steph_rich @brettbrohl 🥳🎄

I rarely hype products, but if you are looking for the absolute coolest pair of kicks for the youngest of people (sizes 5t-10t), nothing beats SmallBirds by @Allbirds. Our little dude loved them, before and after he learned to walk. These often go quick, don't sleep on 'em.

I think often of The Giving Tree and calibration of giving. I’m a big fan of @AdamMGrant’s philosophies on give and take. On that topic, I’m stoked to read The Tree Who Set Healthy Boundaries by @topherpayne and also support @AtlArtsRelief. topherpayne.com/giving-tree

A few have asked why I’ve not been more active on Twitter for a few months. 1. I’m generally spending less time on social media to focus on being present. 2. I prefer right now to listen/learn/observe. 3. I’m not going anywhere! Just recalibrating a bit on optimal engagement.

Thankfully we have exceptional fintech investors, advisors, mentors and community in NYC, with you playing a key role in all of above @JonZanoff. Long NYC Fintech.
Throw back to when the FinTech capital of the world had a FinTech accelerator. ⁦@JeremyShure

When my passions overlap, big smiles. (Bruce and crosswords). Love seeing a @springsteen (and a @tompetty!) clue in this week’s @nytimes Sunday crossword. No hints given here....but a great puzzle, hat tip to the constructor Jesse Goldberg.

I like the framework laid out in the @techstars Mentor Manifesto. Thanks, @galeforceVC -- a big takeaway for me is that we can always benefit from having mentors and a personal board, no matter where we are in life/career. techstars.com/the-line/advic…
Great thread on mentorship and finding/leveraging a "personal board" to help you navigate your journey. My "personal board" spans professional and personal topics and has been critical support in my growth. And most important: pay it forward and mentor others where you can!

Founders often ask me to help them find a mentor or advisor. I always say no. It isn’t that I don’t want to help. I do. But, we have to go through the legwork of finding our own mentors and advisors to ensure a fruitful relationship. More on mentors in the 🧵.
