Our strong opinion: Any investor who asks this question is doing it wrong

Make up your own goddamn mind. I hate asking and Alexis actually explicitly doesn’t want to know.

It’s maddening stupid behavior but too many investors are scared sheep who are desperately at the mercy of two emotions: fear vs greed

Also most investors literally can’t tell if something is good or not

This is also why people start using the same buzzwords (AI ML Blockchain) and collect credentials (Harvard Stanford Google FB) because these are signifiers for those who cannot see that which is signified: good at eng/product/design, smart, gets things done, pays attn to users
