GenuineVC David Beisel's Perspective on Digital Change

December 5, 2005

The best part of the VC job is opportunity and privilege of meeting with so many entrepreneurs. My favorite days are the ones in which I spent the entirety meeting with a couple of company founders. It’s both exciting and engaging to talk with people who are in the midst of the process of creation – acting on an idea transforming basic elements into something elegant, useful, and valuable.

In many ways an entrepreneur is like a sushi chef, creating something very rich out of something very basic. The raw elements of their craft (dead raw fish or people & ideas, respectively) are ubiquitous and available to nearly everyone. But only a select few have the skills and initiative to transform these into something wholly different.

Now that’s unique, exciting… and tasty.
