Lvp Office Hours
We’ve all heard of the ‘warm intro’ into VC, but this is a social construct that needs to be challenged: a mindset that perpetuates the status quo and reinforces bias in decision making. We’re trying to break out of opaque networks and find talent wherever it may reside. The idea of open office hours is to enable those without those networks to chat with one of our investment team, and it is one that we hope will become standard practice.
This is an opportunity for us to pledge our time to find the next generation of leaders within the games industry regardless of where you come from and what your background is. You could be anyone, anywhere, doing anything; if you’re interested in starting your own company in gaming, joining one of our portfolio companies or becoming a games VC, we want to hear from you. We particularly encourage those from underrepresented backgrounds to apply.
You might be a college student or graduate considering getting into gaming VC and want to learn more about the day-to-day? Maybe you’ve just had your first idea and want advice on executing it? Or maybe you’ve got everything ready – the point is we’d love to meet you.
Our first office hours will be Friday 5th August 2022. We will be available from 09:00-10.00 and 16:00-17.00, local time London (GMT/BST). We then hope to continue this every other month on the first Friday (next Friday 7th October 2022 and so on).
If you’re interested in joining and securing a 20 minute slot please email firstname.lastname@example.org, with the Subject: Lvp Office Hours.
Please include a brief description of who you are and what you want to discuss and at what time and we’ll try and make that possible.
We look forward to meeting you!
