Magnus Grimeland | Grit, creating a global unfair advantage and seeking moonshots in venture capital

In episode 79, Alex Proimos speaks with Magnus Grimeland, chief executive officer and founder at Antler.

In this episode, we start the conversation on the structure behind the Antler venture capital platform to identify and foster talent worldwide. We cover leadership, perseverance and grit amongst the most outstanding leaders and how specialisation is often better than a generalist. The conversation covers the diverse world of founders and how they see to identify critical problems that are scalable and financially viable. Finally, we discuss the challenge of building a venture capital portfolio, when so many early-stage companies fail, and despite an ever-growing marketplace of well-funded unicorns looking to eat the world.
