  1. These VCs are delusional, ''startups not going public, behavioral problem''…bloated valuations and investing in monopolized areas 😉 … You got Google doing 2000 patents/year, Microsoft and IBM over 10k patents… Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Apple building ecosystems (covering everything) they got over 1 trillion in cash, aggressive competitive tactics and patenting everything.. Your startups got no earnings because there is no regulation with aggressive monopolized ''making the world a better place'' businesses.
