    • 12. 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.

    • 20. 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
