Sean the Venture Capitalist is (visually) based on my friend Sean, who is not a venture capitalist but a former hotshot developer, now a useless overpaid architect type, quietly vesting while spending his hours drawing flowcharts on whiteboards for customers who should know better, but probably don't.

Love you, man.

Transcription

Sean the Venture Capitalist: … and from what Martin tells me, your product is nothing short of revolutionary!
Desmond: That's nice of him to say. It's also true.

Sean: It is a little odd that your CEO isn't here today.
Desmond: Oh yeah, he got kind of tied up at the last minute.

Sean: Don't I know how that is! Well, we want in. I'll send a term sheet over in the morning.
Desmond: That's great news.

Geordi and Desmond are walking away.
Geordi: How long can you put off introducing him to Owen?
Desmond: Heat death of the universe.
