The Second Mouse

A LP with history of the energy transition gave me this great line yesterday:

“Some people say the early bird gets the worm. Maybe. But the second mouse definitely gets the cheese”

Having been in/around energy & technology entrepreneurship for over a decade, I know what “being early” felt like…. and it wasn’t enjoyable as we couldn’t predictably lean into growth. Now it feels like there is more ability to go for that cheese knowing the trap already snapped down last decade…
