    Insights from this Episode
    - What we’ve seen over last few years is the emergence of a lot of really interesting data sets that just didn't exist a few years ago or weren't packaged in a way that was usable… Firms are more and more looking to combine those datasets to have something that's a lot more meaningful for whatever end use cases they have today – L.D.
    - In order to cater to the real estate vertical, the data needs to be as you started with, it needs to be clean, it needs to be easily accessible - Thomas
    - Data is being put front and centre where it should be. It means that people are able to make a lot more informed decisions – L.D. 
    - In a case like COVID, where the mobility patterns of people that changed overnight, it has an extremely powerful data set to help them understand what's happening in their neighbourhood, in their city, and help them make better decisions – Thomas
    - Our focus is on understanding how people move around on the planet, mobility data, that's where we are experts - Thomas

    Insights from this Episode
    • If you have a digital file, if you have a digital process, if that's even cloud based, you are a productivity wise in a good position – Nikolas
    • It's not a tectonic shift. So all the standards are still there, you see normal deals happening but it's maybe a little bit more investor friendly climate right now than last year - Nikolas
    • We are very bullish on  green technology because we believe that's the super major trend in a way for the next 10/20 years – Nikolas
    • I’ve been doing venture capital for 20 years now, so this is not the first situation that the market changed away, and it was always a good idea to be careful with your valuation – Nikolas
    • So if you just look at 20, 30 years of data… more or less the best venture deals have been done after the financial crisis – Nikolas
    • As a professional investor, if you're correctly investing, if you pick the right targets, if you've optimized terms - it's a good time to invest - Nikolas

    Insights from this Episode
    • I always think of us as kind of like pipeline through portfolio management, and really managing that lifecycle of an asset – Mike Sroka
    • Investing is a game of connecting the dots and whoever can connect the dots and tell the best picture and have an information advantage typically wins – John Fitzpatrick
    • Having centralised data that is globally accessible, has never been more important – Mike Sroka
    • Two pieces of advice: one is to really have a wholesome vision for your overall technical - Mike ecosystem… and then two, the (PropTechs) that are quite successful are truly solving a business problem, and doing it in a technical way that will allow them to scale for the future – John Fitzpatrick

    Insights from this Episode
     
    - The number one lesson is it doesn't matter what product you're backing, doesn't matter what segment you're backing, it always comes down to the entrepreneurs – Gregory Dewerpe
    - You're going to work a lot with those people in tough times, in good times, but more importantly in tough times, and being able to understand who's across the table means you can help them better and you can support them better. And so a lot of work needs to go into the people. It's really all about the people – Gregory Dewerpe
    - I always say I'm looking for humility. Humility is something that might sound very generic, but for me, I always say that when you find humble people, it means they're open minded to learn, they know they can get better, they're also able to change their plans when it doesn't go the way they want – Gregory Dewerpe
    - For me, everything around the decarbonisation is essential because the only way to be more efficient from a carbon standpoint is to become digital and tech enabled – Gregory Dewerpe
    - Since we've all been in lockdown, we've all had that time to take a step back and realise what's important, what's going on in the world and to actually really appreciate it, and make changes – Louisa Dickins
    - The office has been challenged over many decades. It needs to reinvent itself and I'm sure it will, it just going to be different and different doesn't mean worse... We reinvent ourselves, we reinvent the way we work and how we work, and how we interact with one another. So there's certainly going to be some great things happening so for me, it's all positive when I think about the future – Gregory Dewerpe
    - For issues like sustainability, I think the collaboration between private and public is actually essential – Gregory Dewerpe
