Generally, and depending on your investable assets, the more diversification the better.  Diversification means to make smaller wide-ranging investments across several industry sectors instead of just one big investment in a single industry sector.

For example, if you have $1,000 that you want to invest, it is less risky to make ten $100 investments in ten companies in different industries instead of a single $1,000 investment in one company. 

Remember, you should never invest more than you can afford to lose- startup investing should only be part of a diverse portfolio of investment assets.
