It all started when Elizabeth Yin left Google during the VC drought of 2008 to launch her entrepreneurial career by first bootstrapping a series of consumer web products and then creating the ad network for newsletters, LaunchBit, which was acquired by BuySellAds in 2014. Elizabeth then began angel investing and co-founded Hustle Con, an annual conference and media company which has since scaled to over 1M readers. In 2014 she joined 500 Startups as a Partner and ran their accelerator program, investing in hundreds of startups. Today, Elizabeth is a General Partner and Founder of Hustle Fund, a pre-seed venture capital firm in San Francisco. In this episode we discuss her first $1M in startup investments and what she has learned along the way.
