“VCs have become, in a lot of cases, these flat-out braggarts who are just incredibly annoying.”

They also tackled the questions that we’ve all been pondering for some time: Why is VC Twitter so weird? Why is the VC brand seemingly fueled by grievance? And why can’t the top VC firms band together to set an agenda that aligns with the progressive views that Silicon Valley has long claimed to espouse — especially in a year like 2020?
