First, Haseeb Qureshi was a Texas Hold’em poker player. Then Haseeb learned how to code and worked as a software engineer for Airbnb. He went down the crypto rabbithole and is now the managing partner at Dragonfly Capital, as well as an accomplished writer and coder.

When Haseeb has come on the podcast previously, we covered theses and mental models. Today on Layer Zero, we explore the dynamics of being a venture capitalist in Web3. How does one find a path to becoming a VC?

We dive into what to look for in an internal team and external portfolio companies, as well as proper form for selling investments in a credible and honorable way. Haseeb’s long term approach to Web3 is salient as always, and this episode is must-listen if you are interested in becoming a crypto VC.
