    What is NOT interesting for a VC
  • 8 Startup Lessons from Constant Contact
    With more than 350,000 customers, Constant Contact is a publicly traded company (Nasdaq: CTCT)
    If an investor tells you that you can’t build a real business on $20/month, direct them to Constant Contact
    SAAS (Software as a Service) startups need to focus on getting on past what Gail calls the slow ramp of death
    The trick is to give experiments enough time to prove themselves.
    Get a CEO peer group to bounce ideas off of as soon as possible
    If your product is strong enough, people do not need to be sold.
    There are no silver bullets, just many “A-ha” moments.
    A startup CEO’s only important job is what Gail calls searching for the model
    Raising money from institutional investors is all about working the entire partnership, not just your single partner.

  • The Future of Startup Funding
    Seed approach – Ycombinator
    Angels doing bigger rounds, VCs doing smaller round
    Super-Angels: they work as a VC with large investment than Angels
    Wait till the startup is ready for investment
    Too late to invest // missing the boat
    Better startup founders than VCs managers
