For angel investors, awards and industry rankings don't define our purpose. They're merely industry recognition, a testament to our efforts. It's like university degrees: if you don't perform well in exams, you get a completion certificate but not a degree, proving you attended college. These trophies are just completion certificates, showing we were here. The truly meaningful trophies are the societal contributions made by our investments, which can't be measured monetarily. This requires a longer time to assess, sometimes only reaching a clear conclusion years after one's death, similar to artists whose work only gains acclaim long after they're gone.
