But if anyone can do it, where is their competitive advantage to come
from? I can see that you can set up a service company but usually VCs
don't invest unless there is clear protection from competition at least
for enough time for them to recoup their investment. I'm not saying its
not commercially viable, just that it seems like an unusual investment
for a VC to make.
