Success in Venture Capital comes down to getting an entrepreneur to pick you.

And getting lucky.




Getting Selected

— Building expertise in a domain that few others have,

— Investing earlier than others,

— Going to a geography that isn’t well covered by others, or

— Tapping a network that others do not.

Getting Lucky

“Luck = preparation + opportunity”.
