Seedcamp Podcast, Episode 13: Andrew & James of Valar Ventures

In the ‘Seedcamp Podcast Series’ we talk with key people in the tech startup industry to hear their stories and gleam key advice and learnings from their experiences.

We had the chance to catch up with long-time friends Andrew and James of Valar Ventures during Seedcamp’s US Trip stop in NYC.

Valar – a co-investor in TransferWise with us and other investors – is unique amongst US-based VCs, in its mandate to “look for exceptionally talented founders who are creating beautiful products that are valuable across multiple geographies.”

In their words: Valar’s core thesis is that an increasing number of transformative technology companies are being started outside of Silicon Valley and the United States, and that the founders of those companies will benefit from having a US partner that understands their unique challenges and opportunities and can help them achieve optimal growth.

We talked about what they look for in an investment, but also key things they’ve seen work (and not).
