Hence, what you need to become a successful venture capital investor (producing say 7x in 7 years) is an ability to align with the foresight of an entrepreneur uniquely. A vision attached to an unprecedented new and better normalization of truth derived from a discerning view of how the world is supposed to work rather than does.
Meaning, money alone will not make you a successful venture capital investor. The ability to help outliers achieve their unique trajectory to the upside from breaking the norm does.
Hence, you need a brain, the one thing money cannot buy.
