On Saturday, I presented an introduction to venture capital at Etohum's Entrpreneurship Camp. It was fun for me and I hope the attendees found it useful. I was a bit concerned that I did not answer all the questions to the satisfaction of the crowd, due to time limitations. I was also a bit disappointed in my ability to answer the questions using proper Turkish – something I strived for – and I think largely accomplished – in the main presentation. It's difficult for me to deal with industry jargon in Turkish, because it feels a bit artificial and also because I don't necessarily use it in my day to day dealings. It's easier to fall back on English.
The presentation was streamed live, and I understand Etohum will make it available as a video online soon.
Following the presentation, I came across an article in Entrepreneur magazine titled "4 Common VC Myths". Even though I might not agree with all the points, especially the attempt at generalizing in the first point, I think it's a good intro for those who may have had their questions go unanswered on Staurday.
