Guy brainstorms on why “serial entrepreneurs” may not be the best choice to run a start-up in In Search of Inexperience
The final line is a strong one 😎
I once heard Mike Moritz of Sequoia explain what kind of entrepreneurs he wanted to invest in. I’m paraphrasing: ‘Guys under thirty who are building a product that they themselves want to use.’ Amen, baby! I vote for two guys or gals in a garage who are an unproven team, unproven technology, and unproven market.

Here is the background on Guys post
TechCrunch published a great guest post by Glenn Kelman, the CEO of Redfin, called ‘Entrepreneur 2.0.’ It inspired me to piggyback on his idea that investing in ‘serial entrepeneurs’ who have already been successful might not be all that it’s cracked up to be and write this post.
Both our posts run counter to the theory that many entrepreneurs, wealthy from their previous smashing success but restless and too young to die (or become venture capitalists, which is roughly the same thing) are the best bets for the next big thing.
