VCs are constantly searching for the next innovative ideas, but venture capital firms are still living in the stone-age, as far as their tools are concerned. The landscape variance is huge, with firms like Benchmark practicing venture almost as an art, and a16z assigning droves of people on the problem, in an agency-like model. At Aleph we decided to replace the traditional model with data and software, for deal sourcing and community empowerment. We will drill down into what software is eating venture capital, share our numbers and discuss - were our assumptions correct? Is our new model really working? What have we learned from this experiment and, is this an approach applicable worldwide?
