Companies and organizations sometimes publish a “manifesto” to outline their core beliefs and their “why” and/or reason for being. First Round Capital’s First Round Review sums theirs up succinctly:
We believe that there is powerful, untapped knowledge out there that can transform the way people build technology.
There's just one problem: It's trapped in other people's heads — people who are at the top of their fields, who rarely have time to share what they've learned (even when they want to). The Review is about liberating this knowledge to inspire and accelerate action. To deliver on this mission, we'll make you three promises...
1) We'll get out of the way and let experts speak directly to you about what they believe is most important. (That's why we choose not to use bylines.)
2) Every article will serve up tactics that you can use today to change your company and your career.
3) We will never be boring. The stories you find on here are crafted to teach, to engage and to stick.
We launched The Review to cut through the noise so that you can make an impact. We can't wait to see what happens next.
