Successful disruption is difficult to spot. Ideas are endless, talk is cheap, and many founders flourish, while others fall to the wayside.

How can anyone be sure what will be a truly successful venture, and what’s simply hype (or talk)?

We asked Joe Medved, a Partner at Lerer Hippeau, a highly active seed-stage investment firm that funds innovative founders across nearly all industries. He came on the #FlipMyFunnel podcast, where Dave Knox interviewed him as part of Dave’s #TakeoverTuesday series.

Here’s what we’re unpacking today: 

  • Venture capital funding
  • How to determine whether a venture will be successful
  • As a VC, what key trends does Joe see on digital disruption?
  • What is at the foundation of disruptive brand creation?
  • Are emerging digitally native vertical brands going to expand, or get acquired by bigger players?
  • How is voice going to impact brands?
  • How can business leaders evaluate new entrepreneurs with ideas they have no experience in?
  • How Twitter helps you keep up with disruption

 

This #TakeoverTuesday episode of the #FlipMyFunnel podcast is cohosted by Dave Knox, and special guest Joe Medved.
