How can I focus on a very specific market segment when I have to pitch VCs with a story about a massive market opportunity? Surely this means I have to start off selling to a broad range of customers? I hear founders struggling with this conundrum a lot. The answer is that at the very early stage you have to focus super-sharp on a small niche, but have a compelling argument and data for why that represents the tip of a very big iceberg. Without extreme focus, it is extremely hard to make good progress delighting your first set of customers. Which is why I keep drilling many young startups on focus.... The last TechChill conference in Riga had a great talk by Patrick Lee of Rotten Tomatoes who explained this very well: https://youtu.be/iIPYtvUr9MA
