Hence, the job of a successful venture capitalist lies in the pursuit of prime risk derived from a timely opportunity of risk with a profile deep-and-narrow rather than the shallow-and-wide risk profile as in private equity.
Not necessarily always more risk, but merely a different composition of risk. A risk correlated to an alignment of evolutionary foresight that breaks the norm rather than the risk that conforms to and sub-optimizes the norm.
When venture capitalists with a lack of foresight start deflating and delaying their risk of an unprecedented outlier of innovation, only entrepreneurs who meet a venture capitalist’s self-induced subprime risk profile will stick around. In such cases, the theory negatively influences what innovation can be discovered, in the words of Albert Einstein.
