Resources is the oner thing that isn . I have seen founder
“You’re too early for us” = im not interested
“I need to see more traction” = I’m not interested
“I couldn’t lead this one” = im not interested (but man I might be if a big fund loves it)
I get why and I am guilty of it sometimes. It feels polite. It leaves options open and feels right for ‘the brand’. BUT It’s actually weird as every entrepreneur I know would prefer people to say what they mean….
