A catalyzing moment: When I was making the very challenging decision to sell my company last year, one of my investors said this to me: “You’re giving up if you sell the company. Real entrepreneurs don’t give up.” I don’t know how that rings in your ears, but to me, that was the moment I realized that there are good investment partners and there are bad investment partners. The premise of fiduciary duty doesn’t give you license to be a jerk.I am now a Partner at Alpaca, and I will be a different kind of investor. I walked a mile in your shoes and so I understand what it takes. All grit. No BS.
