The Growth Trap
[ growing for growth sake! vs growing in a world/area that is not conducive to grow ] When Twitter went public in 2013, its stock soared and its value jumped to $25 billion. Its founders and early investors got rich. But since then, the company has been considered a failure, despite the fact that it boasts 320 million active users, because it's not growing fast enough. Douglas Rushkoff, author of "Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus: How Growth Became the Enemy of Prosperity," talks to Steve Paikin about why he sees the push for more growth as dangerous. // true capitalists (shareholder, crony, greedy) w/o self-regulation or governance extract all the value there is to extract and then leave, dispersing it to the few who already have [...] WE MUST REWRITE THE RULES OF THE GROWTH GAME ITSELF! [...] you want to optimise the economy based on velocity of money (circulation of money), not share price and value extraction [...]

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.”

Naval Ravikant to VCs: “You can lie to your LPs, but don’t lie to yourselves” | PandoDaily
“There was so much innovation being thrown around—moveable carry, geographic portfolio, unbundling and more. Many were coming up to me later saying the ideas were flying at them too fast. That’s exactly what’s happening in the market.” Even if you don’t know what those terms mean, the important takeaway is that even the stodgiest VCs are going to have to start acting more like the entrepreneurs they serve because the market is only getting more competitive with the ways to fund becoming far more varied and “hackable.” [and add Corporate Accelerators, Incubators and Venture Funds] [...] restrictions LPs put on funds: things like how much you can invest, what percentage of a fund you can invest in follow on rounds of existing companies, what sector you invest in, whether you can invest personally if the fund invests as a group, etc.

New stats show raising Seed money from big VCs increases survival. (The opposite of what everyone in the Valley says) | PandoDaily
(2) Don’t do a “party round” (2) Don’t raise money from a major VC. They will only follow on with the best companies and the signaling risk if they say no can be damning. [...] The companies who raised funds from large VC firms did better than those who raised funds from micro-VCs. [...] The anecdotal stuff is true & the data is true. The answer to how thats possible lies, as everything else in venture world does, with a massive range of quality & low barriers to get in. [...] the # of firms who invest at least $1 million a quarter 4 at least four straight quarters, there are only a paltry 97 firms left in the industry. [...] Raising big institutional funds is hard. Even shitty big VC firms have 2 meet some kind of bar 2 get that money — which is increasingly disappearing in the US. [...] [ hypothesis/thesis of micro-VC is flawed & opportunistic of lower Start-up cost 2 get from idea 2 MVP 2 Product/Market Fit with some traction. higher delta between good & bad co&mVC&angel ]

Angel Investors/Seed and maybe even A Round is about jumping on and doubling down on companies that do well, others don't know about. It's information arbitrage.

Eric Newcomer – Venture Firms Fret as Y Combinator Soars | Genius
“You—and your references—have to be able to explain to a founder how you're going to help them.” +++ via https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8288119 +++ PS: Don't take money from X bc X give u higher valuation. VC firm is a Services Company as is YC. Pick from who feels best with services and added values. I would even go on to say that giving you money is not the core product value proposition any more in VC world. In a world of ZIRP/NIRP/QE/etc, a world were high net-worth individuals hunt for yield on AngelList and Co. Core Product Value Proposition moved to a the quadrants of people who went through it/domain expertise/network&connections/services to scale faster (from HR/taxes/office/law to finding and getting that guy[s] [plural] with the PhD&Work@ScaleExperience to scale Twitter back-end successfully).

Path’s kiss of death compliment: “It’s hugely popular in Indonesia!” | PandoDaily
[+ Raising Too Much Money for a too small product and market!?] It may be the beginning of the end for a company that was once offered $125 million to sell to Google – in a high priced acquihire – less that six months into its existence and before the company even launched. [...] So, what went so wrong? The answer seems to be a combination of poor execution, an excessive focus on design over utility (not to mention differentiation), and a keeping up with the Joneses desire to spend lavishly. [...] The company has always been a reflection of Morin, including his obsessiveness over design and his proclivity for spending. For example, Path reportedly built its team with a designer to developer ratio of 1-to-2, as compared to an industry average that is likely closer to 1-to-20 (or even lower, although precise figures are hard to come by). [[ ~ Spending for the wrong means to an end. ~ ]] [[ ... Inside the bubble that is the Valley and the Fetish ... ]]

Startups: Wagniskapital - Deutschland scheut das Risiko - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Manchmal rappt Horowitz seinen Rat an Jungunternehmer und formuliert seine Management-Tipps mit Hilfe von Songtexten bekannter HipHop-Künstler. Wenn Gründer mehr Mut beweisen sollen, bedient er sich etwa bei Ice Cube und rät: "If you are scared motherfucker, go to church." Die Lobby von Andreessen Horowitz in einem eleganten Flachbau am Rande von Menlo Park ist dekoriert mit Originalaufnahmen von Atombombentests. Das alles wirkt manchmal etwas brachial. Aber trifft man Horowitz in seinem Büro, erlebt man einen sehr freundlichen Mann in Pulli, Jeans und Turnschuhen, der während des ganzen Gesprächs nicht einmal die Stimme hebt. [...] Dann spricht er lange und ausführlich über Regulierung und Arbeitsmarktgesetze in Deutschland. Dass es drei Monate dauere, ein Unternehmen zu gründen. Dass, wenn es nicht gut läuft, kaum eine andere Möglichkeit bleibe, als "gleich ganz zuzumachen", weil nicht schnell und einfach Personal abgebaut werden könne. Dass es an Unternehmergeist mangele. ...

Safe Harbors – AVC
The answer to this quandry is “safe harbors”. I argue for them all over the place. In content licensing. In telecom policy. In banking policy. If we had a general bias in our society to let early stage startups try things and see if they work before we worry about compliance we would see a lot more innovation.

Franchise redux: The professionalization of the sharing economy has deep implications | PandoDaily
But for all Airbnb and Uber’s much deserved “disruptive” acclaim, these businesses have older roots than the hype cycle suggests. According to conventional wisdom, Airbnb and Uber enable “regular individuals” to make a few extra bucks renting out an extra bedroom or giving fellow travelers a ride. They unlock a new class of assets, where fellow consumers share in collaborative consumption. In fact, while these businesses nailed rapidly changing consumer preferences  –  buying services at time of usage, rather than owning assets fits the post-recession, Millennial sensibility of the moment –  the supply side of their businesses does not match the narrative. Supply in these marketplaces is increasingly delivered by entrepreneurial, small business owners, not fellow consumers. Uber and Airbnb are best understood as reimagined franchise operations that leverage mobile data, the social graph, and continuous feedback loops to deliver a better consumer experience.

The Importance of Benevolent Dictators
I believe that groups coming together to make tough decisions driven by consensus tend to make poor decisions. [...] It’s hard being a leader. By definition leaders make hard choices given incomplete information. And by tough decisions I mean it is clear that some people’s views will end up on one side of the fence and others will end up on the other side. But you need conviction. [...] Leaders need to be respected, not loved. [...] Decision makers. Visionaries. Leaders. Chart their own course against the constant chorus of second guessers. [...] Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that you should make decisions without other people’s input. My motto is “always triangulate.” >> http://www.bothsidesofthetable.com/2013/03/10/consequences-and-the-decisions-we-make-or-dont/
