Based out of Detroit, Ludlow Ventures is a VC firm that has investments in Product Hunt, AngelList, our friends at Point, and many more. Jonathan and company pride themselves on running an entity that specializes in "VC Done Right".

We also discussed investing and what his overall approach is, including how he finds leads and people to work with. As this is our first interview with an investor, I can safely say that Jonathan is the coolest, friendliest, and best Venture Capitalist we've ever had on Crewlab ;) Enjoy the episode!
