All About Burn Rate, A Musical Parody by First Round Capital Featuring Many of Their Portfolio Companies

All About Burn Rate” is a musical parody by venture capital firm First Round (previously) featuring many of the companies in their investment portfolio like Upstart, OnDeck, and Hi.Q. The video parodies some of the most popular songs of 2014 including “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, and “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift with lyrics reworked to focus on investment and tech culture.

Another year has passed – it’s time for our holiday tradition
To mashup a startup theme with video memes for our own rendition.

We are all so excited to have this opportunity
To showcase the talents of the First Round Community.

Last year saw unicorns and wrecking balls…
We think it turned out great!

This year we channeled Gurley and Trainor,
Because it’s all about burn rate.

It’s good advice – it can’t hurt to be scrappy,
We hope your holidays are joyful – and your new year is happy!
