Jason Lemkin, author of some the best Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) content online at SaaStr (also check out David Skok’s great For Entrepreneurs site), recently tweeted his top three mistakes as a first-year VC:
My takeaway after reading the tweets is that Jason is a big believer in betting on the jockey, more so than the horse. For many years I believed it was better to bet on a great market with a good team and now I’m in Jason’s camp — it’s best to bet on a great team and trust that they’ll find a great opportunity, even if it isn’t readily apparent.
What else? What are some other thoughts on Jason’s top three mistakes as a first-year VC?
