Donna Novitsky illuminates the operational differences between a Venture Capitalist (VC) and an entrepreneur. She contrasts them from her personal experiences. She broadly talks about three differentiating operating nodes - strategy versus execution, technology versus team building and diversity versus singular focus. Novitsky mentions that a VCs judge markets, people and technology. An entrepreneur is an expert in a field and has to dive deep into operational aspects of the field and focus a lot of energy on building a strong team.
