An entrepreneur is passionate about his idea. He is a risk taker.
One who manages to make things work even when in low probability situations.
This is because of his flexibility and adaptability.

Venture Fund managers by definition are money mangers.
Many of Them have been trained to follow progress in terms of Q over Q, numbers on an excel sheet.
These are exactly contrasting complimentary strengths. Which can make a startup a business success.
Or has the danger to create rift and stifle the progress of organization.

Choose the right Venture Partners.
Those who understand the domain and more importantly those who share the core of your passion.
