Fantastic post. I would add that having a Midas List VC on your Board sucks all the oxygen out of the room. There is a catch 22 here.. not only do you have the dynamics above, you have your board become less effectives as it circles around the items that the “midas” wants to talk about. I love capital that comes with commercial experience… and the ability to work both with me and the other board members. Be selective… and ignore the midas list ranking..
