Many investors regard investment as a "numbers' game"- they invest in a large number of startups, assuming that if you throw enough darts you are bound to hit something. With such approach- they don't have the ability or the motivation to help their investments succeed, and indeed the vast majority of them, if not all, fail.
We at Decima Ventures rather take more selective approach. We selectively pick fewer startups to invest in and with that- we are committed to making sure they succeed. What it takes from us as investors, we know, is more than some cash and a quarterly phone call.
