Here’s a logical, enlightening post by Bill Burnham on understanding why your VC may be acting like a ding-dong.
The takeaway is that while your company is the absolutely most important thing in YOUR life, the reality is that you might not be that important to the people you’ve decided to jump in bed with. This isn’t anything to whine about, this is just life.
Bill gives some helpful advice on both the financial and organizational reasons your VC may be pushing for a quick sale, turning down a good opportunity, or leaving you for dead. You can’t blame them. At the end of the day, everyone has their own best interest in mind. It’s human nature.
