Why you’re “too early”

This is completely anecdotal.

It’s because the GP didn’t have “conviction” to go to bat for you over another person in their portfolio for you. The personal connection wasn’t there. I think that there are metrics that GPs set without the intention of discrimination. The idea that anyone has to face societal difficulty to hit anything in a business is a concept most investors aren’t used to.

This is especially true in the Consumer VC practice.
