In conclusion, I do however believe that to be an early stage investor you must be a structural optimist. You need to be aware of the struggle but like a ball be able to bounce around and every time higher and above any struggle. If you do not have a similar attitude please change job: we are here to change the world ☺

As an entrepreneur, now you have a bit more insights about the psychology of a venture capitalist. Either you are soon going out to raise money, or you want to improve the quality of your interactions with your existing investors, use the tips above and keep thinking about the symmetric dimension of the struggle.
