My word I am amazed, right now I am seeing a ton of this: “I will do 400k of the round but you need to find the lead.” Seriously? I thought we were past this. Gain the conviction. Write the check and lead the damn round. The best have the courage of their conviction. 👍

One of my favorite quotes that I am spending a lot of time thinking on: “The key is not the will to win... everybody has that. It is the will to prepare to win that is important.” Bobby Knight 👍

Getting tired of news outlets that are supposedly covering tech using clickbait, covering topics of no substance and generally getting paid to promote certain “news”. It’s blurring people’s perception of what’s actually happening in the ecosystem.
