VC v. Entrepreneur Dodgeball: Labor Beats Capital

Last Friday we witnessed the hilarious and sweaty inaugural Labor vs. Capital Dodgeball Tournament in Santa Clara. Just the kind of back-breaking news you’d expect to come out of Silicon Valley. Fortunately, the entrepreneurs won, effectively socking enough stubborn venture capitalists with rubber balls to get back at even the most reticent of funders. August Capital’s David Hornik (of VentureCast fame) and Hunter Walk (YouTube/Google) organized the event and procured a half dozen plastic trophies for the winning team, unappetizingly named Backsweat. Everyone got bright orange t-shirts and Dodgeball DVDs as well as one stinky excuse to beat traffic and head home early.
