Phin here 👋 

I'm a sneakerhead and VC focused on redefining partnership in the world of venture capital as a co-founder at The General Partnership. Before that, I went from unpaid intern to managing partner at First Round Capital, worked at AND 1 Basketball from “day 2,” and founded a fitness video game company. I played hoops in college and have maintained my addiction to sneakers, love of hip-hop, and a decent trash-talk vocabulary.

Every week, I’ll share my thoughts about building products, the craft of investing, and how to help founders find their best answers to company-building challenges by amplifying their strengths. All posts are free.

A sampling of my writing:

  1. A small sign of big growth for a CEO

  2. Self-confidence is the foundation of focus

  3. Zero zeros

  4. Just listen

  5. My choice to do the work
