The One Who Defines the Category Wins the Category – David Sacks with CRAFT Ventures

No objective is more important for SaaS founders than early category leadership. Over 75% of the market cap in a software category typically goes to the category leader.


VCs know this, so funding disproportionately flows to startups that can lay claim to early category leadership. Perception often becomes reality, as the startup with the most resources to spend on sales and marketing builds the largest subscriber base, which gives it more resources. This virtuous cycle causes most SaaS categories to accrete to a big winner over time.

It’s not just VCs who want to back the category leader — it’s customers too. The reason is a variation on the old saying that “nobody ever got fired for buying IBM.” Nobody ever gets fired for buying the category leader. The category leader wins the easy sales — the order taking — while also-rans must sell hard to win every deal.

AngelList reports on seed stage, investors would increase their expected return by broadly indexing into every credible deal.


Startup Growth and Venture Returns: What We Found When We Analyzed Thousands of VC Deals

Link to post > AngelList

Conventional investing wisdom tells us that VCs should pass on most deals they see. But our research indicates otherwise: At the seed stage, investors would increase their expected return by broadly indexing into every credible deal.

That’s one of the results we found when we analyzed the thousands of deals syndicated by AngelList over the past seven years to test assumptions about the nature of venture capital returns. We’re presenting these findings in a first-of-its-kind report out today, Startup Growth and Venture Returns.

Theoretically Infinite Regret

According to our research, missing the best-performing seed deal can cause you a theoretically infinite amount of regret. What does that mean? Consider Mark Suster, who passed on the Uber seed round and was quoted in the Financial Times saying: “Aaaargh.”

How can you avoid missing the best seed deal? The simplest way is to put money into every credible deal. Maybe you have a crystal ball that gives you perfect foresight, in which case you can pick only the best winners. Even then, if your crystal ball is even a little cloudy eventually you will miss a winning deal—and that winning deal might have been the best-performing investment.

Simulations on 10-year investing windows for seed-stage deals suggest fewer than 10% of investors will beat the index, even if those investors have skill in picking deals. Like Vanguard has taught us in the public markets, individual investors could benefit from viewing the index as the default and then overlaying individual deals that they like.

TORONTO, Canada — In essence, luxury is about status, playing to that fundamentally human need to communicate who you are and how you fit into the social hierarchy. Through the ages and across cultures, status has been expressed in a multitude of ways, from the tone of one’s complexion to the size of one’s kingdom.

The World Economic Forum has just published its report “The Future of Jobs 2018” on the future of the world of work. According to the foundation, 52% of current job tasks will be performed by robots from 2025. The study was conducted in 20 countries around the world and from companies operating in 12 different sectors.

Our chart shows the ratio of man-machine work time in 2018 as well as the forecast for 2022 for a number of work tasks. For each task, the share of the machine hours is predicted to experience a significant increase of between 32% and 59%. In addition to research-intensive tasks, the identification and evaluation of information, activities related to administration, management and consulting are set to also undergo a significant transformation alongside developments in automation and artificial intelligence.

According to the study, 75 million jobs could be eliminated by 2022 in sectors such as customer management centers, accounting, postal services or assembly plants. Nevertheless, the World Economic Forum estimates that the ‘robot revolution’ could create a net 58 million new jobs over the next five years.
