This Much I Know is the popular podcast from Seedcamp, Europe’s seed fund

Lucas Nelson of Gotham Ventures

On our very first day of Seedcamp's Spring US Trip, we had the chance to visit Lucas Nelson of Gotham Ventures. With a background in hacking and a clear interest in the more technical companies and founders, he provides a very unique view into the world of investing and adding value as an investor.

During our chat his interest in helping CTOs surfaced. Through his co-creation of http://www.startupctosummit.com he provides CTOs a way to share their learnings with each other, and shares some of the top mistakes during our talk.

If you're ever in NYC, don't hesitate to get in touch with Lucas.
