Twilio Q&A

3 Sep, 2011

Conway answers questions for the company – in which SV Angel has an investment – about hot markets, his investment thesis, and whether there is a bubble. On tech trends:

At SV Angel, we have a chart of “mega-trends” that we follow closely. The first and most obvious is social. We see a new kind of entrepreneur emerging in social. We call them “Behavioral Entrepreneurs.” These behavioral entrepreneurs understand that hardcore algorithms are no longer essential for success. Great UI and UX are becoming the new IP. Thanks to the low cost of computing, these entrepreneurs find innovation in human behavior, not pure technology.
