This week’s Ask a VC has a different twist, since we had a different kind of VC on the show, John O’Farrell Andressen Horowitz’s guru on business development and deal-making.

The questions you asked O’Farrell are below. As usual, feel free to watch the whole show or use the links to skip ahead to your question.

“If you are managing a fund, has the timeline for ROI gotten shorter as a result of this unstable and uncertain environment? Also, what are your thoughts about an entrepreneur allocating a percentage of funds raised to remain outside of bonds, equities, and currency denominated assets until the
funds are necessary, instead remain in a physical commodity?”
attention or credit in many startups?”
“How can I build the right team to start a VC firm if I don’t have any VC experience, but do have a good eye for talent? Who would I need to recruit to help me run the firm without losing all control of it myself?”
