Whenever smaller entrepreneurs get their software company up and running, some venture guy comes around with a heck of a lot of money.
What if that venture guy don't know anything, whatsoever about software development and see the whole development team as an expense, instead of a value generating unit? It's all about sales, even with the software that they sell performing very bad, getting more and more difficult to maintain because of technical debt incurred at an early stage.
The venture guy hires a managing director, that knows just as much about software development as himself.
Can he ever succeed?
I'm curious to hear others' opinions on this.
