Woody Benson is a VC with Prism VentureWorks in Boston, which has funded new media startups like Comedy.com and Worldwide Biggies (whose MoCap, LLC web series just got picked up by Spike TV). He spoke at The Conversation conference in Berkeley yesterday. Given the rough week tech companies were having, I thought I’d ask him a few questions to get a VC’s perspective on what new media startups should do right now.
Benson was hardly doom and gloom. In fact he considered now a great time for startups to find cheap real estate and programming talent. He did echo the sentiments of other VCs and likened startup hygiene to flossing — you gotta pay attention to how your spending money every day. Hear what else he had to say in this brief video interview.
