Everything about venture capital . . . you can learn from music lyrics

Here I go, it's my shot, feet fail me not
This might be the only opportunity I got

As I get older, I find that I need to give myself mental tricks to remember ideas or concepts.  

A few weeks ago I gave a brief presentation at a USV offsite that uses music lyrics to cover some of the concepts about venture capital that I think about often. My first draft was much longer - 70 or 80 slides. The final one is 36 slides. I have attached it below.

The playlist is:

Drake & Future - Change Locations
Bob Dylan - Don’t Fall Apart on Me Tonight
Jay-Z - U Don't Know
Bruce Springsteen - Rosalita
Lou Reed - Some Kinda Love
Courtney Barnett - Avant Gardener
Post Malone - Leave
Ween - Roses Are Free
Lil' Wayne - 6 Foot 7 Foot
Jay-Z - D'Evils
Rihanna - Pour It Up
Kanye West - Touch The Sky
Billie Eilish - Bad Guy
Willie Nelson - Blue Eyes Cryin’ In The Rain
Lizzo - Juice
Taylor Swift - You Belong with Me
The Beatles - The End
