What Venture Capitalists Are Really Thinking

I cofounded a company called Sawhorse Media that's making sense of Twitter (Twitter was founded by past Venture Voice guest Ev Williams).

We decided to launch a new site called Venture Maven to make it easy to follow what VCs and angels are tweeting about. For example, if you were pitching Spark Capital, you could have checked Venture Maven yesterday to see one partner was at the dentist and a principal just got off painkillers after a knee surgery. Better open the meeting with a good joke.

Please let me know your feedback. We're also thinking of launching a similar site for founders and CEOs.

You can find Venture Voice on Twitter at @VentureVoice and me personally at @Gregory.

It is a nifty idea and that SparkCapital thing really drives home the need for such a feed.

I am now building traction with my project management tool (we just released last week!), but I will use this when I feel we need outside funding.

Sawhorse has a bunch of really interesting Twitter pulse readers, nice. Have you seen this: http://twistori.com/

Thanks guys!

Diwant, I've seen Twistori -- it's an amazing site that shows the important of design and the power of short content.
