“As a three-time successful entrepreneur and a new venture capitalist, I believe there are only a rare handful of truly great opportunities, like Facebook, that many VCs nonetheless allow to pass by, refusing to recognize them for the golden nuggets they are.  With almost 20 years as an entrepreneur and one year as a VC, I strongly believe that Demand Derivatives has more than the potential to become one of these, and fast.“
