The greatest trade-off with being a founder is to let go of opportunities to invest in other companies is due to lack of cash & time. Over the period of 5-10 years, there are at least a dozen life-changing opportunities that do incentivize a founder to go-to freelancer or investor round. My batch had at least 10-20 companies that I really wanted to invest time or cash but it wasn't possible due to resource strain but if there was an option to swap equity with the pool, we would've been very glad to do it. Like, give out 20% of my equity to other startups in exchange for theirs. This'll create a massive pool of strong founders who are able to grow.
