Alfred Lin — Investing In Greatness
Alfred Lin is a partner at Sequoia Capital. Alfred is an investor in companies like Airbnb, DoorDash and Instacart among others. His track record as an investor is impressive, but as an operator, building companies like LinkExchange (sold to Microsoft), his own venture firm years ago that invested in winners like OpenTable, and then Zappos (selling to Amazon)… his track record as a builder is just about as impressive as an investor. As you can imagine, Alfred has a lot of insights from uniquely being at such high levels on both sides of the table. James and Alfred talk about how he spots great founders and what the process at Sequoia is really like, peeking behind the veil of one of the most prestigious investment firms in the world.
