My willingness to fail gives me the ability to succeed. — Vinod Khosla 

Chris, Dave and Lizzy of The Startup Factory have each been an integral part of my startup and of many that call the Triangle home. 
As you’ve probably heard, they’re shutting the fund down after several good years. And so I wanted to take the time to write about all that they’ve accomplished and reflect upon the lessons we can continue to learn from the way they’ve run the fund and served as the cornerstone of our now vibrant community.
