About 3 years ago I went to a random meeting with a discussion
on Angel Investors and Venture Capital. On the surface the event
was just like any other, except for one glaring difference.
What was different?
The Angel investor showed up a little drunk, which helped me to
crack the code on Angel Investors and Venture Capital types.
During the event the investor mentioned that in order for him to
invest, you would have to ‘go to the dark side’.
Even after being pressed by the audience, he still would not
divulge the meaning of the dark side.
What was he hiding? Or an even better question might be,
‘What exactly is the ‘dark side’?
Let’s look no further than The Star Wars movie franchise… Darth
Vader starts out as a man yet ultimately becomes an evil machine.
Over the last three years as I engaged this idea of the ‘dark side’
more and more, I found better solutions that were definitely NOT
from your average playbook.
I believe there is more than one way to do things and we don’t
always have to do things by the book.
This thought has provided me with endless inspiration, propelling
me on to ideas that are Bigger, Stronger and Faster with little or no
I’ve accomplished this not by fighting the dark side, but by
connecting with the ‘dark side’ to find the custom path of any
company, application or idea.
