Raising Venture Capital?


by Miller Info Commons

Are you thinking of raising venture capital to fund your startup?

I did in order to start Compete and at my previous companies, so I know the process  intimately. With Lookery I'm doing things differently this time.

Raising any capital is going to be more challenging today than a year ago but still quite doable.  With Compete we raised our first round 6 months after the Internet Bubble had burst as did many others, it can be done.

Although I chose to do things differently this time I have plenty of VC friends that I'd recommend to anyone interested in raising money.  Contact me for any recommendations. Before you do that though I recommend you read "Why VCs Will Block Good Exits" carefully. Very simple math just make sure you do it before not after raising money.
