In one world, late-stage investors respond to technology shock adjustments by demanding early-stage investment from the world, forcing seed investors to go even earlier to protect ownership and potential returns. This trend has been highlighted by firms such as Andreessen Horowitz launching preliminary program months later $400 million seed fund launch. What’s more, Techstars, an accelerator literally launched to help startups get started, debuted a fund to support companies. it’s too early for his traditional programming.

While all this is going on, investors in the early stages endure assessment adjustment and portfolio markdowns. Some admit to advising portfolio companies to refocus on cash conservation, profitability and discipline, not just growth.

Let’s imagine that these two completely different worlds are in the same universe: early stage investors become more disciplined and wealthy, but at the same time, the earliest investors leave earlier. Investors are pushing founders to be frugal yet green while also offering them $10,000 to take a week off and try their hand at entrepreneurship. Growth, gross margin and burn are the new top priorities for leadersbut at the same time, venture capitalists are pushing for more funds to be offered earlier, in newly invented sub-categories of early-stage investments.

The tension between these two worlds looks different depending on whether you’re a Stanford founder building a SaaS company or an aspiring entrepreneur trying to change agtech. Despite this, the growing focus and discipline in the early stage just makes me think about one general question: what else do early stage investors need to focus on?
