Josh Ephraim on the show today and I couldn't be more excited to have him be TheArtof.VC's first Thursday episode. 

Josh joined Dorm Room Fund during graduate school at Berkeley which gave him amazing exposure to a unique demographic of founders that hadn't completed college degrees. He's now an attorney at Gunderson Dettmer representing early stage startup companies. In this one we chat about things like underrated legal terms for founders, identifying early talent, Josh's experience at Dorm Room Fund, and why DRF uses SAFEs. We also touch on why MFN clauses are preferred in the context of DRF.

I'll throw the links we reference below:
