From Quentin Hardy at Medium:
Let’s start with the obvious: You don’t need to feel sorry for venture capitalists. At the same time, with a little empathy for what they’re going through you can gets some clues about where a tech-driven economy is going. VCs are, after all, people who listen all day to pitches from other people who typically want to put the latest and coolest technology against the most challenging and rewarding problems. Even on a good day, this can mean listening to a lot of the same thing.
