Rapid Innovation

A VC: Musings of a VC in NYC

When people ask me why I prefer to invest in software-based innovation vs other important areas like biotech, hardware, energy, etc, I always point to the speed at which software can be built, released, and iterated on.

Business Model Innovation

A VC: Musings of a VC in NYC

I believe business model innovation is more disruptive than technical innovation. A good example of this was moving from web apps to mobile apps, which was largely a technical innovation.
