On roundabout vs valley

2 things I jotted down during an event I spoke at 2 weeks ago.

1. Startups and VCs need to be near their customers.

2. VCs in the UK are like football season ticket holders, they always think they know best but have never actually tried playing professionally. Most VCs in the US in tech will have run their own business before, this makes them better investors for startups. They understand what matters and what doesn’t.
