I have a dilema. I am enjoying my new role as a Venture Capitalist. I could totally get used to the power of giving people money and helping them realize their good ideas. But I just met the 3 Doodler in the Pitch Pool and it gave me pause. On one hand, it is a brilliant tool and I’d love to have the classroom set and introduce it to my son’s 4th grade class. On the other hand, it is all based on plastic, and as the polar ice caps melt, and as I rearrange my life to cut down on my own use of plastic bags as much as possible, I’m not so sure I should be promoting and investing a tool that adds to this global problem. (I’ve just checked the site and they offer the choice of ABS which is #7 recyclable and can be turned into plastic lumber or PLA which is biodegradable and made from corn, but I’m still not 100% comfortable. Plastic is plastic and Reduce is better than recycle.) On the other, other hand, if I don’t invest, someone else likely will. I can just tell it will be a successful venture. Is an ethical Venture Capitalist a poor Venture Capitalist. Or should 1 be somehow forging a new ethical Capitalism? These two hats don’t both seem to fit so comfortably. Thoughts, anyone?
