TechCrunch Live is all about helping startups build better venture-backed businesses. Founders and the investors who finance them sit down to talk about how they met, what kept them interested in one another and, ultimately, how they sealed the deal. We also discuss the relationship that they share in working together through scaling.

In this episode, we'll talk to McKellar and Goldberg about why Index doubled down and led two rounds in the firm. We'll also discuss what metrics Goldberg looks for in SaaS companies, how he evaluates founders and what sings for him in a pitch.
