VC/Unpacked #9: The VC Twitterverse

February 17, 2021 | Mike Collins

This series curates great content that folks interested in entrepreneurism and venture capital should explore. Some are from my own must list; others have been suggested by our community.

Have a recommendation? Tell us about it.


Hi AVG Community,

Twitter contains a universe of minds — and that includes a robust representation of venture capitalists. They run the gamut from provocative to thoughtful, inspirational, optimistic, and contrarian. Below I offer some recommendations on reliably good accounts to follow, as well as a few meta articles about venture capitalists on Twitter. For those who don’t have time for books or even podcasts, this is a great way to plug into venture trends, philosophies, and opportunities.

Venture on,

– Mike Collins
