Thinking like a founder
If there's one thing you could say we do different at Better, it's this - we think like a founder.
It's hard to explain what it means but easier to feel it - it's a massive amalgamation of optimism, can-do attitude, long-term thinking, confidence, whats-the-opportunity thinking vs whats-the-risk thinking, non-consensus-ness, and more.
Thinking like a founder helps connect the dots better, helps imagine the future along with the founders, and understand the challenges in a positive vs negative way.
It also cuts through FOMO and other stuff that comes in the way of conviction building.
Most of all thinking like a founder helps connect with founders at a level that is not possible when you are thinking like just an investor.
