Amen. Struck me as sad this kind of smart, risk-adjusted approach has fallen out of favor in the age of the $Billion Venture Fund. “Blitzscaling” is a reasonable model for VCs investing in 25 things simultaneously, but foolish for entrepreneurs trying to build something that matters, and that lasts.
The best TOS episode is “City on the Edge of Forever,” and TNG raised the ante with ‘Tapestry.” The latter actually has a lot to offer an entrepreneur, and is packed with Picard badassery. I look forward to seeing what you see in these.
