The only disagreement I have with your logic is that of the prejudice on VC's.
I have no inherent prejudice against VC's , as I actually said, they are 'good and bad'. A necessary evil in a de-regulated economy. When I say they are 'not my kind of people' I meant that I tend to prefer the company of artists, writers, and creative academics. Those are the people I prefer socialise with, in general I find financiers to be a 'dry lunch'.
