I found that being a VC entails a very different kind of excitement than entrepreneurship does. It offers intellectual adventure, exposure to amazing people with brilliant new ideas, and the chance to make a positive impact on the world. The author, who has been both a VC and en entrepreneur, has found far fewer ups and downs as a VC as compared to being an entrepreneur. As an entrepreneur, the emotional roller coaster ride is such that the highs are very high and the lows are very low.

Through the perspective of entrepreneurs, I was intrigued by the way how entrepreneurs get the highest valuation possible from their VCs. Maintaining good relationships with VCs and having them as business partners and not people who would directly interfere with the decisions of the company seemed crucial when having a business.

I am intrigued that the VC industry is becoming more accessible. global, and flourishing with innovation. More and more countries are starting to have developments in venture capital and China and India are prime examples. I learned that VCs and entrepreneurs all around the world have different approaches to business than the ones in the US or Silicon Valley. For example, European companies invite VCs to fly in a day before and go to the opera in the evening with them, and then move on to other business meetings. In the US, people VCs and entrepreneurs would talk together about basketball or football.
