I am an early stage VC My @ Mangrove Capital Partners.
To put it into context - my job mostly consists of rigorous travelling around Europe, working with exceptional entrepreneurs and discovering their unique insights as I go.

The most ambiguous term in startup land...
A couple of weeks ago, I caught myself in a meeting using the wrong definition of ARR. I realized that most people in startups aren’t that familiar with the correct definitions of ARR, MRR, collections, and bookings.
