A Year in Interviews and a Break: Nick’s Newsletter No. 51

Originally published on my newsletter on 2/14.

I start working at JMI Equity on Friday and we’ve decided to hold off on publishing the newsletter for a few weeks to give us time to figure out the best way to make it work in a fund that’s subject to various regulations with regards to its marketing practices.
Thus, for the 51st issue, I wanted to recap the 38 interviews that I was lucky enough to hold over the past 50 weeks.

I also wanted to note that after running last week’s interview, Hexadite CEO Eran Barak sent me some revised answers to my questions about his product roadmap and Hexadite’s functionality. I’ve updated our interview here.

Thanks for reading and hopefully I’ll be back in a few weeks!
