It’s both less and more thank you think. Indie.vc is one of several initiatives, funds, projects and support organizations that at giving shape to a new narrative of how we build businesses that matter. The values are already there, you and others are “just” giving them a narrative coherence. What’s more important, more than merely shining a light as you put it, and what was palpable at the Portland dinner, is that Indie.vc et al. are providing a safe haven, a place to belong, a community for founders and funders who experience the cognitive dissonance of their values with the prevailing value system. That’s huge, creating those safe spaces where alternative business models, term sheets, and exit strategies can flourish.
