Often the deals they do are larger to create a bigger impact.
A lot of VC’s these days are stage agnostic.
Consolidation (in venture capital) is actually good.
You have to negotiate each line item.
Failure is as much a part of success as success is.
Expect that you’re going to fail.
Don’t be pessimistic about failure.
There are so many things you have to say no to (due to time constraints and work-life balance).
Your universe is not unlimited. You don’t have unlimited time. You don’t have unlimited resources. You don’t have an unlimited budget.
You need to find a pace that works for you.
If you’re not doing what gets you excited to get up every day then just stop it.
You should love your job.
Don’t do anything you don’t love.
Intel is the eighth largest software developer in the world.
Right now there is too much money chasing too few deals.
Understand what you care about and what are your priorities.
