A Dozen Things I’ve Learned From Chris Sacca About Venture Capital | 25iq
“Good investors are in the service business.” “There are angels who have 75 companies and don’t call any of them ever.” [...] “Any VC will tell you where they really make their money is on following on, it’s on doubling down into the winners. The things that are growing geometrically in terms of users, revenue that kind of stuff.” [...] “I do try to focus a lot on the entrepreneur as a person, I think that has fallen out of the equation recently…. look for driven people.” [ execution, passion, vision, mission, alignment ] [...] “Companies don’t succeed, when there’s a lot of chiefs and no Indians.” [...] “Create value before you ask for value back.” [...] “It’s people with these broader life experiences who have balanced relationships who come up with the cool shit.”
