Menashe Ezra, one of my former Partners, was recently named Israels outstanding VC by the College of Management's High Technology CEO Forum. Well deserved recognition for a professional, now a partner at Gemini Israel, I learned from Menashe the value in recognizing the difference between the important, and critical.
In a world where time is a key limiting factor, you must choose amongst many important alternatives. Keeping sight of your strategic objective, and knowing when to put on blinders, and when to look broadly is an art that comes with experience.
An award well earned.
