I worked for a consumer startup that fit the profile. CEO would come up with an exciting business model, raise money with the dream, staff up, fail the execution and then 6 months later lay off half the company to go lean, pivot and repeat. They've squeaked by with 4+ years in business doing this, raised tens of millions from good investors. I could definitely see why any VC firm would want to steer clear of a business like that

Why do you work there? And I don't mean that in a snarky way, I'm curious what motivates you to stay.

Not the parent, but "I worked..." -> past tense.

I don't anymore.

Whoops. That's what I get for posting at 2am.
