Stayin’ in the lane

Well-established VCs generally stay in their lane (fintech category), often knowing the directions from traveling to the same destination repeatedly. Now junior VCs, those newer to fintech investing, seem to be staying in their lane, too.

Today’s VCs know the best ‘alternate route’ to arriving at their desired destination on time and within budget to cashing out. In this new era of VC funding, specialization, not diversification, maybe a much safer trip.

Some notable trends this week…
