Want some VC learnings?
I love ‘lessons learned’ articles, because, let’s face it, it’s fun to not make rookie mistakes (even if you are a rookie).
Here are 8 lessons learned from VC Jason Lemkin of Storm Ventures that also set up SaaStr, from his first 18 months as a VC.
I think these learnings are also useful for founders to understand the game too.
Read the detail here.
Now the bullets of his 8 learnings:
#1 — Not Immediately Investing in the Truly Great Ones
#2 — Not Investing the Maximum Amount
#3 — Looking for consensus
#4 — Meeting with anyone that hasn’t already picked me
#5 – Trying to Create Deals
#6 – Spending Time On Anything Outside My Sweet Spot
#7 – Trying to Actively Do Two-Handed Deals
#8 – Worrying At All About Price
What do you think? I disagree with #4.
