Look for the exit and a return for your investors and team when you see it. Nothing wrong with stacking chips and starting your next company with a Win. It’s hard to find exits and the windows open and close fast. To often founders get over confident, stay on the table and miss a window.

Within reason make time for people in your network. It's when people are in search of their next move or stuck when they need you most. Don't underestimate the power of the universe and how things come full circle. Limit the use of your "busy" card.
It's not easy to admit when you are wrong, but when it came to one of our 2018 predictions: "Celebrities will influence purchasing decisions in augmented and virtual reality" we whiffed.
Thank you Hewlett Packard's Enterprise.nxt for the inclusion and sorry if I was a bit harsh on our follow-up call. #Predictions #Missedit #C2Ventures #virtualreality #wearablecomputing HPE Steve Stratz
