The 1% focus

99% of companies should not raise capital from venture capital firms.

But many founders who are in the 99% thinks they are the 1% who should. Sometimes investors think the same way and that may spell trouble many rounds or years later.

Work with your cofounders, advisors and investors to make sure where you stand.

If you are the 99% (and there is absolutely nothing wrong with this), and want to be the 1%, work hard and leverage on your team, capital and strategy (timing/speed), and execute to address larger markets (Y-axis) and increase the sophistication of your MOATs (X-axis). See http://reactionwheel.net/2019/09/a-taxonomy-of-moats.html.

Once you know who you are and what you will be in 7-10 years will you be able to honestly approach the right investors who fit you.
