Turner Novak is a venture capitalist and partner at Gelt VC. Turner came from a single-parent, low-income household and worked his way to becoming one of the more popular venture capital thinkers on Twitter today. Through hard work and sharing his thoughts online, Turner began finding his venture voice.

But it wasn’t until Turner created his Fantasy VC portfolio that he got past the hurdle of people taking him seriously.

Turner and I chat about strategies as a venture capital, how VC is different from public markets, key man risk and attaching numbers to narratives in valuation.
