By definition for non-consensus bets, the value proposition (what), adoption rate (when) and business model (how) are very uncertain. Both distributions are heavily right-skewed — most startups fail! But non-consensus bets can lead to huge wins when you get the who, what, when and how right.

Correlation Ventures just released a study that shows the distribution of outcomes across over 21,000 financings and spanning the years 20014-2013.
Based on their data, a full 65% of financings fail to return 1x capital. And perhaps more interestingly, only 4% produce a return of 10x or more and only 10% produce a return of 5x or more.
All of this math simply underscores how important winners are to venture returns and how difficult it is to find them.

Weight of Love takes place in the beautiful serenity of a beach; however all isn’t peaceful. the film stars supermodel Lara Stone, who plays the head mistress of a cult of women who live in a lighthouse.  the women live and work on the beach, performing creepily in sync exercises and throwing their arms rapturously into the sky as Auerbach’s scorching guitar solos echo in the background.
