On this Drive at Five editione speziale the omnipresent community builder/angel investor/and now Solo GP, Sarah Drinkwater sits in to discuss her newly announced fund, Common Magic.

Tune in, turn it up, and start taking notes, because this week we’re talking:

– What is a Solo GP fund?
– Angel speed, less structure, more access.
– Nightclub term sheets.
– Traditions to keep, traditions to change.
– Sarah has raised one-third of a targeted £10 million.
– Investing in 30 to 35 startups in Europe and the US at the pre-seed and seed stage.
– “Hey kid, here’s a hundred bucks, don’t spend it all in one place.”
– “Products with community at their core.” What does that mean?
– Sarah’s first job? You do not want to miss the answer.
– Flexing the Google
– 2014 – 2018 London. Good times.
– SuperVenture: 40 people at a meeting, 38 in ironed white or blue shirts.
– Temperature check: what is the funding landscape like at the minute?
– What are LPs looking for right now?
– Who do you see as people, “who are underestimated and underrepresented in their field”?
– Grit!
– An eye infection, pitching for 50 hours a week, and nobody says yes.
– Pitfalls founders should be aware of when setting out on community building.
– Nick breathes community. But only if they smell good.
– A thesis, an ah-ha moment, and a “but isn’t this obvious?”
– Great club nights.
– “I’m always nervous about trends because trends imply impermanence.”
– Building community is hard. Community builders are busy.
