The exact same thought process we’ve had.
We are now taking service revenue and investing directly into assets, to generate steady cashflow.
It certainly is a perk of being small and thinking long term.
The Venture backing is enticing though, there is so much to do and sometimes it can seem like the fastest way to get there is to gather funding.
Either that, or more likely the VCs marketing tactics have worked. It’s unlikely the rush really exists, it just benefits them for you to think it does.
Great creative solution with the fund by the way.
Love the idea.
