Compared to executives, investors in software companies and venture capitalists typically have a higher awareness of risk, and by virtue of having a financial interest in a portfolio of investments rather than focusing a single company, are less inclined to have an overly strong emotional attachment to a specific venture.

A common problem in young software companies is over-confidence of the founder/CTO and the software development team in their ability to build scalable, high-quality software.
