Draped under the guise of “being helpful” many super-connectors create flurries of meetings for first-time founders. I try to steer entrepreneurs away from over-introducers and I often find myself wanting to be careful about them becoming an investor in companies I back.
The Corrosive Nature of Over-Introducers

Would love your thoughts on this phenomenon when it happens with intra-preneurs. When, say, a really new idea is being born inside of an existing structure / organization and people who are well-intentioned end up over introducing the developer of the idea, without actually fully understanding the scope or vision of the project. I find that if you insist on focus, you can actually create a backlash among very nice and well meaning colleagues. Not so easy to do when you work in a company. Easier to be focused outside of the company.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
