How VCs win and individuals lose. This is a non-ergotic game?
There are many ways to think about this. VCs winning and individuals losing is somewhat reductive & provocative however I've always found VCs somewhat slimy.
Anyway, you could change "Individuals" to "Apps" where, lets say, an App is characteristic of a game with 50 iterations (~24% probability of success). Therefore, the more apps an individual is able to create, the greater chances of ultimate gain. This is an argument for a portfolio of apps vs focusing everything on one app.
