4 months+ into VC, I’m pretty much still in learning mode. With no previous background in VC the learning curve is as steep as it gets.
In other words, I’m trying to reduce the number of unknown unknowns, and increase the number of known unknowns. By knowing what I don’t know, I will be able to optimise for:
a. Continue to capitalise on my strengths and use that as leverage and;
b. Decide if I need to spend time on areas of weakness or experience gaps that can be fixed and;
c. Rely and defer to colleagues and extended network for areas of weakness or experience gaps that are inefficient for me to fix.
It’s been a very interesting ride so far, and I definitely look forward to seeing how the adventure unfolds.
