2/2 Leaving funds with "heavy infrastructure" vulnerable to high burn rate should there be a tightening of liquidity (just like startups)1/2 The old 4-year investing cycle for unicorn seeking funds has been severely shortened to a 2-3 year time frame (per @danprimack )@arhomberg yes but every single super successful co i know has had that and you can't really influence itWhen I ask what made @supercell successful: fast and decisive strategy setting, radical (narrow) focus, consistency, speed. Culture..@GoogleVentures Europe will leverage G platform to differentiate, syndicate most deals: http://t.co/TuY9FjGbp9 #tcdisruptYahoo about two years late buying Brightroll but makes sense because ad networks go to die there http://t.co/pYYfknodQQ good for $tube
