“In an industry that is predicated on innovation, it seems absurd that young people are still encouraged to be frictionless. VC’s pride themselves on being contrarian, and yet the industry is still ruled by the same practices and principles that were established 40 years ago. And the lack of friction – in our products, processes, and people – has made it easier to cling to the status quo. If giving up my suite of no-code automation tools created more space to rethink and redesign the processes that define the venture industry, I would do it in a second. Maybe more friction – more questions, slower processes, higher barriers to broadcasting every thought that comes to our minds – is exactly what we need to break the status quo.”
Interesting thoughts on how the way we make software has shaped the way in which companies operate and the way they're funded as well.
