Very recently, one of our portfolio company CEOs experienced a horrible tragedy; one in which there is no reaction or response that can substantiate what has happened.  This tragedy has hit very close to home personally – and has rocked our organization all the way up to our LPs – Karen Pritzker and Michael Vlock – as we try to see if there is anything as a collective that we can do to support them during this time.

To this person and his family, please know that the entire LaunchCapital team – and entrepreneurial ecosystem is here to support them when they are ready.

To everyone else out there (entrepreneurs, VCs, angels, mom’s, dad’s, brothers, sisters, etc), go home tonight, turn all of your devices off, have dinner with your family and spend a few minutes reconnecting with them.  Talk about something silly.  Laugh about something stupid.  Don’t take yourself too seriously.  These are the moments in life that matter most.
