    [Venture Capital] VC:VC Capital Efficiency
    Capital efficiency is the notion that an organization uses capital wisely, frugally - that the capital is used to best effect.

    [Venture Capital] VC:VC Hibernation
    It is tough for your venture cyclist not to hibernate in the sour winter. In the other part of my VC life, the venture capital side, this is generally a busy time of year - not a time for hibernating at all (perhaps this is why VC bloggers do appear to hibernate ).
