Sometimes the key to success is finding a niche and exploiting your specialist knowledge of it. For New York-based venture capital fund Harris & Harris, the niche could not be smaller - it invests in companies involved in nanotechnology (its ticker on Nasdaq is TINY).
Harris & Harris is a classic early stage VC firm, says Mr Harris, except for two facts - first, it only invests in "tiny technology" and second, "we only invest our own capital". Because it is a publicly held company that invests only its own, permanent capital, it can be an unusually patient investor, he says. This is useful in a sector that has seen $8bn (£3.8bn, €5.4bn) poured into it by VC firms over the last 10 years but has seen little in the way of exit opportunities.
