My interviews with venture capital’s most successful failures have proven that the sage old advice from Kenny Rogers still applies:
“Ya gotta know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away and know when to run.”
It’s not time to run, but it is time to fold up the Venture Capital Coroner’s Report. I just can’t get a steady enough supply of guests to keep going. If you want to hear the three reasons people declined to come on the show, listen to this six minute episode. You might be surprised.
I’m going to leave the shows up on iTunes and move them to my new website markwking.com You can share them with a friend or catch-up if you missed any episodes. You’ll also find my new blog and podcast about impact investing and how lessons from the venture capital industry can change the world for better.
Lastly and most importantly, I want to again thank all my guests. The difficulty in getting people to say yes greatly heightened by appreciation of the people who did. You were gracious with your time, patient with the interview process and honest about your experience. THANK YOU!!
