Why We Burn The Unicorn

We in Silicon Valley only practice one play: throwing a Hail Mary to a unicorn. Elsewhere, there are reindeer, zebras, and all manner of creatures we have yet to see. Investors can make money on all these, if we’re willing to go back to first principles and invent new ways of financing these companies.

Entrepreneurship is such an incredible canvas for actualizing a teams talents, creativity, and values in the real world. Companies can create movements that reimagine cities, reshape culture and reframe what is possible. Yet, we continue to ask founders to twist and contort their stories, and their visions, to fit themselves nicely into a unicorn shaped box.
