Retweeted by Fred Destin @samuelgil I just mean you have to select based on upside potential but then you live in the real world looking after the team you backed @samuelgil great post btw thanks for sharing @samuelgil you're assuming larger VCs cannot tolerate smaller outcomes which is a stretch :-) @_PeterT_ @CendanaCapital Not really a post on fund investment strategy. Are you saying smaller funds don't obsess about large outcomes?Well put. Upside x Impact requires conviction to take big bets early before the herd of "meh"s rushes in ... https://t.co/0nmym6SijM

@trengriffin @howardlindzon haha I got it tren if we knew each other you'd find violent agreement :-). Thanks for sharing, great post. @trengriffin @howardlindzon of course it is. just one aspect of it - all VCs need to confront portfolio construction questions.Why VC’s are obsessed with large outcomes - https://t.co/opRPaVymH6Wow! https://t.co/aOGNxTbok4Nice point made, but wish it were that simple. Feels like so many great outcomes looked like a fold at some point. https://t.co/SIVxJAOweVWe the VCs are really just midgets :-) https://t.co/64hkrNMZegProof if you still needed it that every company is a tech company. Great expansion in the acquiror pool :-) https://t.co/DU0WaCNm4fA staggering look inside @Uber by @susanthesquark .
