Getting Funded with Venture Capital: Why It May Not Be Such a Good Idea

Getting Funded with Venture Capital: Why It May Not Be Such a Good Idea | Startup & Technology | Scoop.it

"You are more than three times as likely to crash your startup as you are to ring the NASDAQ opening bell."

Robin Good's curator insight, April 14, 2014 5:31 AM



Rachel Chalmers illustrates five key reasons why it may not be such a great idea to get your startup funded by venture capital.


These include: 


  1. Not getting a fair hearing

  2. Rising capital means losing the YOU and giving in to financial interests as the primary drivers

  3. The majority of VC funded companies will not ever generate any venture success

  4. You are not going to have full control anymore

  5. Venture math is a harsh mistress 


Key advice: VCs are optimizing for a very specific outcome (making a large as possible profit fast). Share that alignment, or don’t take their money.


Chances to convert a startup into a VC-funded success, are not very high, if you look at the numbers. But worse than that, is what you have to endure and give up to achieve that goal.


Useful. 7/10

The interaction, trust and camaraderie of your teams can make or break your business.

Cathy Matthews's curator insight, March 21, 2014 9:56 AM

Your business team is like family and should be treated with dignity and respect. Your team, if focused on obtaining a common goal and proud (not to mention excited) to come to work each day, is what makes an organization successful. This is accomplished through defined goals, clear strategy, clear communication, and working well with others. As my dad used to say (a very successful businessman who worked his way to President of his company), there are 3 rules to live by in the business world: 1. Love what you do; 2. Love the people you work with; 3. Love yourself.

Jill Miller, SPHR's curator insight, March 21, 2014 3:37 PM

Hold to your principles when hiring and managing to get and keep great people.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, April 20, 2014 8:54 PM

I changed the title here because the longer you can bootstrap your startup the less you give up and the more you get for your hard work.

Brenda Collins's curator insight, May 8, 2014 3:37 PM

If you can boot strap your venture then do so before talking to investors. Gather around you people who have no vested interest in your company except your success and will speak honestly to you.
