Trust trumps all when it comes to fundraising
Thank you for your insights, Abhi. I enjoyed the read.
I'm curious; at what point does it stop being about the VC imparting their guidance, knowledge and expertise before they decide a founder hasn't 'thought about building a product deeply' enough? How long is that piece of string?
Trust is an immeasurably powerful paradigm across the entire spectrum of human to human interaction. I would argue, the vast majority of early-stage founders pitching for the first, second or even tenth time think they know 90% of what it takes to build a product, hire a team or size a market appropriately, but in actuality, they probably know 10%. Does that deem them untrustworthy?
