NextGen Newsletter - December 2020
NextGen is a 20+ year old community supporting each new generation of venture capital talent.
Hey folks, Shawn Xu here! I’m officially taking over the reins for this newsletter from the amazing (and seriously irreplaceable) Natalie Dillon. Big shoes to fill! As you might have noticed, we’ve made the transition over to Substack. Expect to hear from us every month with the latest content, events, and job postings relevant to the next generation of venture capital talent.
One ask from us - we’re hoping to highlight investors each month going forward. If you have a win you want to celebrate (or know someone who you think should be recognized), please shoot me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Special thanks to everyone who participated in our NextGen Secret Santa gift exchange, we have 75 people sending presents across the country! Wishing y’all a very merry holiday season and a happy new year :)
