Read Bob Moul’s fiery tweetstorm on venture capitalists and the tech community

But what sparked it? Just some “midday musings over a margarita,” quipped the Cloudamize CEO.

Cloudamize CEO and former Philly Startup Leaders president Bob Moul took to Twitter this Thursday and fired off a string of comments seemingly directed at investors’ perception of the local tech community.

Though it’s unclear what triggered the string of tweets, the messages came a week after First Round Capital cofounder Josh Kopelman dared Philly entrepreneurs to “choose bigger ideas” during an open house at Curalate’s HQ.

This Wednesday, a panel of investors gathered at the 2016 Angel Capital Association Summit said Philly needed more success stories to encourage local investment.
