Hello, and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.

This is our Wednesday show, where we niche down to a single person, think about their work and unpack the rest. This week, Natasha interviewed Ankur Nagpal, the entrepreneur behind Teachable, Ocho, and Vibe Capital – Ankur’s $70 million venture fund, raised last year from over 200 investors.

Today, we’re talking about:

The future of Solo GPs and Ankur’s choice to shrink Vibe Capital’s fund size
How Ankur built, sold, pivoted and launched in public
The upside of building in public vs building in private
The importance of brand and succession

Of course, we ended with a lightning round of questions – including the meaning behind Ankur’s tattoo.

As always, Alex, Natasha and Mary Ann will be back for our weekly news roundup on Friday, but you can follow us on Twitter @EquityPod for live updates and more.
