Last year, I started working as a venture capitalist. And after reading many VC’s blogs over the past few months, I became eager to engage in the active dialog online. So I am started my own weblog: GenuineVC – Beisel’s Perspective on Digital Change.

My intention is to provide my own commentary on the how digital technology is currently transforming both businesses and our own lives. My hope is to provide a unique perspective through the lens of a young venture capitalist, trying to find and help build new companies that will further shape and change the way we work and play.
