Background Information

Overview
At Spark Capital market and model be damned -- we take risks on visionary people and products that move us. We look for three things: Founder, Product, and Vision. The traditional VC approach (Market/Model/Team) doesn't work for us. When we are considering a new opportunity, we spend time using the product and getting to know the founders. We view each product as an extension of the founder and an expression of his or her vision. Just like Tumblr is a reflection of David Karp's view on the world, Twitter is a reflection of the point of view of its founders: Jack Dorsey, Biz Stone, and Ev Williams. Using a product can often tell you more than any pitch deck.
