On Incubators and Rock Health
Yesterday I posed a rather long rant/entry on the Rock Health blog. It was in reaction to a really ignorant piece that ran in MedCityNews, where the interviewee literally just ran his (uninformed) mouth on and on, with no facts, and no data. He compared Incubators such as Rock Health to puppy mills, a garden of broken dreams, the valley of death, and finally, accused people inside incubators are just gambling with people's dreams. Yes, these incubators include YC and Techstars, if you can believe that.
Meanwhile, you'll be glad to know, he works for a saintly profession. He's a VC. He's been one for a whole six months, according to his LinkedIn profile. So clearly, he's got it all figured out.
Anyway, it was a horrible piece and it drove me to reply. It took a few drafts to get all the f-bombs out. You can read the whole entry on the Rock Health Blog
