As you know, I’m a mentor at various idea-stage Startup Incubators around Austin, with my help revolving around helping startups win or raise money through pitching and investor decks.

One of them is Founder Institute, which my friend Martin Martinez brought to Austin. He asked me and Chris Michael Harris, host of the Entrepreneur Hour podcast, to livestream interviews with graduates of the 3rd Cohort, as well as Directors of the program. This short interview is with Paul O’Brien, one of the Directors, and the CEO of MediaTech Ventures. I ask him about the state of Venture Capital in Austin, the 3 types of people investors look for in a team they want to fund, and what idea-stage startup teams.

This was recorded right before an event, so please excuse the background noise.

As always, enjoy!
