At HMV, we know money and progress is made by going AGAINST the herd, not with it. So this morning, we took advantage of the weakness in the crypto markets to add to our core Poplar Fund long positions.
Great day in Indianapolis with #GrowWithGoogle. Enjoyed the seminars, coaching, and demos greatly.
Recognizing the growth potential in real estate (especially in comparison to current equity pricing), HMV (Twinleaf Fund) initiated a small investment in the Fundrise Growth REIT.
The Fundrise model represents an excellent way to engage in focused real estate investing without the hassle and cost of direct real estate investment.
Our founder and principal, JARuppert has maintained a personal investment with Fundrise for some time.
We look forward to following the model and the anticipated returns.
High Mountain Venture, LLC's launch of its third fund - Poplar.
Poplar is a closed, private investment fund with a focus on blockchain and cryptocurrency platforms. Another novel twist? Membership interests in the fund will be secured by a custom Ethereum-based token.
The HMV Poplar funds looks to a new era in investment models and returns.

Simple, easy-to-follow explanation of why the bitcoin is tech that is, and will, change the world.
Certainly supports the rationale of HighMountain.Ventures current holding of the following cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings (ICOs):
HMV holds these for future use, but undoubtedly there is a prospect of return - near 1000% on Ethereum to-date (since July 30, 2015 ICO) for example.

My hackathon team built a "Bot Law School" in an hour late last night @TBDLaw.
It's designed for the non-coding attorney to build bots to answer legal questions through QnA markup and decision trees. Code/machine language coming later.
You can see the results of our quick test work here:http://www.lawascode.org

What is TBDLaw?
Here's how it is described at TBDLaw.co:
Not an Ordinary Conference
Far more than an Un-Conference, TBD Law is a unique mix of summit, retreat, design-thinking workshop and hackathon. Designed by LexThink founder Matt Homann, TBD Law is about collaboration, connection and creativity, not CLE.
TBD Law is for a curated group of lawyers who've moved their practices past their peers'. If you've made the list, you're already ahead of the curve. TBD Law will help you stay there. If you think you're one of them, fill out the form below and we'll talk. .
By Innovators, For Innovators
Nobody wins in the race to be first to be second. At TBD Law, you'll build your future with lawyers who will push you out of your comfort zone instead of pushing you back towards the status quo.
I'm ready to immerse myself in a room with folks who are smarter than me; more talented; and see the future.
Maybe some of it will rub off...
Very helpful tool from WSJ.com - The Startup Stock Tracker: http://graphics.wsj.com/tech-startup-stocks-to-watch/
Always fascinating to watch the institutional ETF / mutual fund "biggies" (ex: Fidelity ContraFund) move into the private company space. Their valuation and subsequent adjustment of startup valuation often lays bare the delta between the Wall Street and SF Bay business models and stories.
The truth may rest somewhere in the middle.
