“Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.” Bill Gates
It is usually difficult to fully grasp the meaning of a phrase like the above, particularly when in 2014, one year after starting T2M, I truly felt I had more to offer rather than to learn.
Life proved me wrong and evidenced many hard lessons. Perhaps one of the most repeated and least implemented is learning to say no, to make a decision to stop, to stick to the investor role rather than to adopt the savior role.
During the second half of 2020, T2M will be 8 years old… we keep going strong, we continue to build strong and lasting relations with our portfolio companies founders and partners, and we are starting to experience exciting development stages.
