VC Economics 101: A €10m seed fund requires at the very least €15m in returns (in practice more than €20m). If it makes 30 investments and 1/10 succeeds, it needs to make at least €5m in each success to make a profit. Assuming 10% equity at the time of exit, any opportunity with less than a €50m exit potential is another one it should pass. It's a tough game, thus the "addiction" to big markets.

A different view on +Nikos Moraitakis latest post.
My good friend Nikos Moraitakis wrote a really good piece yesterday on “the topics you won’t hear on panels”. It was the same day that the Athens Techcrunch meetup event took place so I guess the...

But what about single interest of each single community "guru"?

The magic of the long tail is that it's open to everyone. The danger in overinvesting in the hype machine and the turboboost of outbound marketing is that it may just distract you from what actually creates viral videos, hit books and freelancers in high demand: genuine excitement from a core group that won't rest until they tell their friends.
