Vision transplant is a fatal operation

“I thought of you whilst in India visiting an incubator invested in by one of our backers..  the guy who was running the incubator used the phrase “vision transplant is a fatal operation” – and I remember you saying the same thing.”

I received this email from a buddy of mine. I totally agree to this. I have yet to see a situation where an early stage startup changed the CEO and did really well afterwards. This is very hard to get right. This is why we work with entrepreneurs from day one in Forward Labs.
