Here are some common truisms that are often passed down by VCs but aren’t applied in their own business:

+ Establish dominant market share and become the very best.
+ Have one CEO.
+ Founders should demonstrate deep commitment to future value creation by taking low salaries.
+ Companies should invest in growth and market dominance over profitability.
+ Companies should go public and being a public company is very good for the long-term.
+ Acquisitions can be accretive and strategic.

Venture Capitalists are MUCH LESS ambitious than their private equity siblings
