Stu Phillips – a partner at Ridgelift Ventures – has a good post titled So, how many boards are you on? that is a follow on post to the one I wrote on Feld Thoughts titled Reconciling Time Commitments.
Today’s great post(s) come from Ken Gaebler and are titled My Competitor Raised $50 Million – Great! and conversely My Competitor Raised $50 Million – Yikes! Ken did a nice job of being both an optimist and a pessimist around the issue – and addresses a bunch of the opportunities and concerns that ensue.
Today’s great post is from Fred Wilson titled The Fiction of 20%. If you’ve ever negotiated with a VC, you’ve likely heard something like “I need at least 20% of the company to make the deal work.” Fred has a great rant on why this is – is in his words – rubbish.
Matt McCall of Portage Ventures has the VC post of the day up titled Term Sheet 101: Preferences. It looks like Matt is working on a Term Sheet 101 series which would go nicely with the Term Sheet series that Jason and I wrote a while ago on Feld Thoughts.
