I recommend investing in the best of both.
What if giving a young, unproven startup founder $30M to pursue a rollup strategy were a great move?

If recruiting isn't one of your founders' core competencies, then recruiting someone with that strength is priority 1
RT @TechCrunchOnion: 17 year-old founders lining up to sell their companies to Yahoo.
