Here's the video of the Venture Shift panel: "Has the traditional VC industry been forced to pivot by the rise of angels, super angels, incubators, etc?"

On this panel, we had Randy Komisar from  Kleiner Perkins Caufields & Byers, Phil Black from True Ventures, Raj Kapoor from Mayfield, Rob Hayes from First Round Capital, Howard Hartenbaum from August Capital and Rich Melmon from Bullpen, who moderated.

For a great overview of the panel, read Faith Merino's "Angels meet a need the VC industry couldn't."
