Andreessen Horowitz investor Martin Casado shares five must-know tips for entrepreneurs going to market where no market yet exists — skills he learned first-hand building and selling Nicira for $1 billion-plus.

“In a pre-chasm market, marketing outreach has to be much more targeted and educational (which is therefore harder to outsource as it’s grounded in deeply understanding the product).
