Big Red Car here on a sunny SXSW Tuesday in the ATX. On Earth as it is in Texas. No sign of snow, but it’s early.
So, the world is divided into three basic camps:
1. Entrepreneurs and founders — consumers of capital
2. Funders of all kinds — angel investors, venture capitalists, friends & family
3. Ballerinas & poets — folks who are not in the startup world and are gloriously happier in their ignorance of it
Each understandably has a unique point of view depending which role they undertake. Forget about the ballerinas & poets for this discussion.
