The Amazing Power of Deflationary Economics for Startups

The Amazing Power of Deflationary Economics for Startups | Articles of interest | Scoop.it
I’m often asked by people what investment areas interest me.

 

It’s true that I have a functional focus on three areas: Performance-based marketing, digital television and mobile computing. I try to invest in things that I know and that I believe I might have better knowledge and relationships than the masses of VCs.

It’s also true that I’m mostly founder driven, where the founding team & my personal relationship with them leads to a strong mutual working relationship. If that bond isn’t there or if it feels like I’m in a bidding process for the highest price, I might as well be Wells Fargo.

And it’s something I think you ought to consider when building your Internet businesses.
