If you are a EUVC regular listener you know we've had a few of Seedcamp's stars on the show, but this will be a whole new ride. This is the first of a two-part special episode. Today we are happy to welcome Miguel Pinho, head of technology at Seedcamp, he works on internal and public-facing projects ensuring they leverage the right tool suite to continue to identify, invest and support the most exciting companies out there.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Miguel’s journey to becoming one of Europe’s leading voices on the VC Tech stack & the path to being a truly data-driven VC

  • How Seedcamp’s journey with tech took Miguel from a Fireman-phase, through a Gandalf-phase, then McGiver-phase to finally arrive at the Architect-phase

  • Why simple and unsexy things like Password managers are things VC managers need to think about when building their tech stack and why

  • Why, how and when VCs should think about hiring a head of tech

  • Why FOMO might be a good thing in venture, but a terrible thing in building the VC tech stack - and pervasive in the industry nonetheless
