VC Values impact on education and non-profit world

Kim Smith, New Schools Venture Fund

Smith talks about how the VC model allows for larger investments over a longer period of time. Also, the investment tends to be in organizational infrastructure rather than a service. VCs are more focused on growth than bottom-line success, she says. An entrepreneur must be disciplined and willing to walk away from people who do not share the same values.
