Those who spend time with me know I am a broken record on the topic of “it’s all about the people.”
But it seems to me I need to change my tune – a bit. In the consumer web, it’s really all about the product guy (or gal).
Looking back on my happy and not so happy experiences investing in, and working with, consumer web startups, the theme is surprisingly clear. The presence or absence of a great product guy is the single most important determinant of success.
So, for all of you product studs out there, and/or all of you who are friends with product studs, give me a call!
