So to coach the team well you should know how to play the sport. So I would advise those who want to be venture capitalists to be entrepreneurs as well."
Ann Winblad
Founding Partner, Hummer – Winblad Venture Partners
 


"This is my third company. The toughest thing for each of the previous two was knowing when to move along and hand over the reins to the next guy, even when you know that your work has been done and the business model has changed or whatever and you need to go and figure out the next brilliant idea and start a company around that."
