Dana Oshiro - General Partner at Heavybit

· 48:14

Dana Oshiro is a General Partner at Heavybit. Heavybit is a VC that invests exclusively in developer-first startups.

What we discuss:
  • One sharp thing. Finding an addressable chunk of a bigger opportunity. 
    • Thinking big & small
    • Are 5 people seriously going to support our migration from DataDog? At Facebook you had a lot of support people/systems you're forgetting
    • Finding the sidedoor
  • Stepping up as a founder
    • Fear of hitting up the people you respect.
    • Best founders build for themselves
    • Do founders get better at putting themselves out there?  
    • Speaking in front of people to make change - "there's a new approach. We deserve better!"
  • Movements
    • DevOps & JamStack
    • Don't try to control the movement
    • Joining into other movements
