Episode #12: Unexpected Product Pitfalls in Venture Investing

SC Moatti recently joined the Fund81 podcast to talk about how to discover and vet products in venture capital. In this episode, we talk about how VCs can spot early indications of future product success, creative ways to look under the hood before investing, and the product-related questions most venture capitalists fail to ask.

SC Moatti is the founding partner of Mighty Capital, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm, and Products That Count, one of the largest communities of product managers, leaders, and founders in the world. Previously, she built products that billions of people use at Facebook, Nokia and Electronic Arts. She also serves on boards of both public and private companies, including  Opera Software (OPERA:Oslo). An award-winning bestselling author, Moatti has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, the Harvard Business Review, and on NPR. She lectures at Stanford Graduate School of Business, where she earned her MBA and has a Master of Science in electrical engineering. For more information, visit scmoatti.com.
