The world is changing, along with the way we look at it and experience it – this includes a merging of the physical world and the virtual one. This “great convergence” forms the basis of the newly unveiled thesis of NGP Capital, the venture firm backed by Nokia.
Paul Asel, co-founder of NGP Capital came on the Global Venturing Review podcast to talk about the lessons learned from the firm’s recently concluded 15-year second fund and the future of the market. He explores how those lessons – which include the importance of balancing financial and strategic objectives, the important of broad engagements, the value of non-linear opportunities and adapting to changing markets – are being applied to their new fifth fund, which operates under the new thesis.
