Risk averse VCs are bad if you want to take a lot of risk. If you want to raise a ton of money, have a high burn rate, hire tons of sales reps quickly.
But … if you don’t plan to raise another round. If you aren’t burning a lot of money. If you don’t need to ask your VCs for more money.
Then risk averse VCs sometimes can be nice. They won’t pressure you to go harder and faster than you want to.
