I'm not sure because I can't remember which startups only had one founder when we funded them, but I know there are 2/36 in the current batch and there were 3/26 in the previous one.

Both Xobni and Dropbox were single-founder startups initially.

Thanks. That's quite a convincing argument.

I'll get a "Remember Xobni & Dropbox" T-Shirt printed for when you interview me, then.

"Both Xobni and Dropbox were single-founder startups initially"

Initially, I think, is the key here. Am I wrong to assume that you loved the idea, the technology, and the potential of the marketplace and that any concerns you might have had over a single-founder was assuaged by the founder's desire (but not yet accomplished) goal to find a proper co-founder/partner?
