Umair’s post today made me realize the source of some recent anxieties I have been experiencing. He points out a post by Scott K., to whom he did not link and I was not able to locate, and comments how VC and media are not compatible.
I have been operating as an early-stage investor (without much investing :)) since the summer. However, as my interest has been shifting from technology to media, the set of available investment opportunities have been shrinking. So maybe, Umair is correct, when he says:
"…this is because VCs (with a few notable exceptions) and media are not a
great fit – they don’t get media, they’re a bit scared of investing in
media, and they often treat it like tech."
If he is correct, then there should be room opening for VC involvement in media, as the internet growth slams into media.
