Last week I had a 15 minute convo w/ a VC that was the single best conversation I’ve ever had with a VC.
And I also felt more confident somehow that he understood my journey.
Everyone has struggles- personal and professional.
Authenticity to me is connected to (appropriate) vulnerability.
My reaction to his sharing might be unique but I doubt it. And I think if more VCs were as authentic as he was in that conversation, their relationships with founders would be stronger.
