Announcing Kiltr Ventures
I announced back in January that I was leaving Real Ventures to join FreshBooks. I’ve been spending some time with the fine folks at FreshBooks since then. I had forgotten just how hard it is to operate companies. Especially fast growth ones. It was all too much, so I am announcing today that I am going back to the VC World.
I am pleased to announce a joint venture with Kiltr called Kiltr Ventures. KV is a new, specialized venture fund that exclusively backs Scottish entrepreneurs. The Scots are a hardy bunch. They have toiled under English persecution for centuries. They are virtually unemployable, which makes them great founders. And many of them have fled the crap weather in Scotland giving KV a global base of potential founders to choose from.
If you or your parents were born in Scotland and you are a founder of a startup, I want to hear from you. Strong preference will be given to anyone whose surname begins with “Mac”.
