GenuineVC David Beisel's Perspective on Digital Change

October 14, 2005

I thought this article in today’s San Jose Mercury News correctly assesses the current funding atmosphere. It promotes the notion that today’s Internet entrepreneurs are looking for more than just money out of their venture capital partners. This demand should be true regardless, but it’s apparent now more than ever. The last line reads,

“If you [VC’s] really want to have a seat at the table… you’ve got to be involved at an earlier stage — putting in little dollars, and then really work the deal.”

    Thanks for the additional information. I’ll check out that reference, too.
