Legendary VC Don Valentine tries to explain his success. Why the obsession with the market?
"Because our objective always was to build big companies. If you don't attack a big market, it's highly unlikely you're ever going to build a big company."
An elegant explanation of how to change the world.
P.S. Valentine tells a story (start around 50:00) about Sandy Lerner's termination from Cisco. You might be interested if you know Urban Decay. He describes her as "tough beyond all comparison." Hmm.
