One of things that inevitably happens when you’re in the angel or VC trading business for two years is that besides an ideally healthy profile, you’re also building a growing anti-portfolio. As far as I know, the term “anti-portfolio” has been coined by Bessemer. What follows is a summary of successful companies which Bessemer saw and offered spectacularly, including Apple, eBay, FedEx, Google, Others, and Intel. I’m a big fan of dealing with failures openly, and I applaud Bessemer for being so open about their anti-portfolio.
The two “passes” which I regret the most are SoundCloud and TransferWise. The reason why these two ones stick out is that I had the opportunity to invest in them (at an early on stage with reasonable terms), spent time taking a look at them, and decided to move. Since that time, both SoundCloud and TransferWise have become “unicorns” or are on the way to getting there. Congrats to the founders and early investors of these fantastic companies – Alexander, Eric, Christophe, and Jan (SoundCloud) and Taveet, SeedCamp and Index (TransferWise)!
Another unicorn that we turned down is FanDuel. Congrats team FanDuel, Fabrice, Andrin! 1B-valuation companies that we’ve missed up to now, but there are other companies that people offered and which are doing great. While I am of course learning from all of these mistakes, I also know that it’s unavoidable that my anti-portfolio will continue steadily to grow as time passes. And although that can hurt, I know that that is alright – at least so long as we’re pleased with our non-anti-portfolio.
