Mike and I met up with Brendan Baker of Greylock (formally with AngelList) for dinner tonight. Brendan was introduced to us by Luxr co-founder Janice Fraser as a person that we should meet with. Janice mentioned that Brendan had vetted over 3000 pitches for AngelList and has great insight into the VC and Angel financing world, plus he is a Luxr graduate and is Canadian (he is from Vancouver as well).
It was great to chat with Brendan, as advertised, he has tons of experience in dealing with startups. One thing that he mentioned, that makes us happy, is that he likes the name “PayrollHero.com”. Brendan had lots of insight into the financing circles in Silicon Valley and was able to answer lots of our questions about the tech world here.
