“We had a monster plan with bells, whistles and a cherry on top.
Impossible to fund and even more impossible to get to market without a
thousand moving parts. I can still feel the sting of our pitch to Selby
Ventures when we got 30 seconds into the pitch and a partner shouted
out “Not another plan to change the world! I am out of here!” and he
got up and walked out.”
–Gerry Campbell, reminiscing on Bounce, a music network idea, on his blog and how small ideas can be better than big ones.
(Susan sez: What makes me love this story is the VC walking out of the room; I am personally sick of small ideas, they often have small impact.)
