For the final episode of the first season of the Fund81 podcast, I interviewed Jaclyn Freeman Hester from Foundry Group. Since joining Foundry Group in 2016, Jaclyn has seen more VC fund pitches than she can count.

She also has an incredible pulse on the landscape for emerging managers and trends in early-stage venture capital. Enjoy!
We'll be back in the spring with Fund81's second season. Stay tuned.
