Moneyball, the film based on Michael Lewis’s excellent book about the business of baseball, opens this weekend. If you haven’t read the book or seen the trailer, the basic idea is: Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane — played in the film by Brad Pitt — turned the baseball industry on its head by using objectivity and data to help pick a baseball team, instead of subjectivity and gut. It was controversial and not perfect, but he did a pretty good job at it. As I was re-watching the Moneyball trailer this week, I wondered: Could this same principle be applied to investing in tech startups?
