We will never know the counterfactual. I try to help our founders with objective inputs to their decisions, from our own experience and our network’s.

Patrick previously started and ran a VC fund for Universal Music Group, which had invested in Spotify, Shazam, Uber, TikTok, Houseparty, Stance and more.

He is an avid sea swimmer and coffee sipper when at home in San Francisco, and prefers running and reading when on the road in Europe or New York.

I’m much more excited by an individual than an idea. Both can change, but only great people can turn around bad ideas. I focus on the jockey, not the horse.

David co-founded tech events business Web Summit, and helped it grow to host some of the world’s largest startup gatherings. He resigned from Web Summit in March 2021.

David is an active father of three, and splits his time between Dublin and Lisbon, when not crisscrossing Europe’s other capital cities to meet with founders.
