Investments We Didn’t Make

Over the years, we have missed a huge number of “opportunities.”

Some have been real losses – companies we didn’t invest in which turned out to be very successful. Other deals were unsuccessful and thus represent “bullets dodged.” Still others are “undetermined” and may later prove us to be either right or wrong. The stories below describe a range of the investments we didn’t make – for better or worse.

To protect the companies and other investors from our frank commentary, we have described them all under the fictitious name “Acme.” Clear investment mistakes are shown in Red, bullets dodged in Green, with “not sure yet” situations in Blue
