The exact same thought process we’ve had.

Thanks, Aidan Heron — one of the things our work on the fund has yielded is a number of rather surprising conversations with other founders who wish they hadn’t taken VC.

In one case the need for a couple of key hires led to tens of millions of dollars in successive rounds, with the founder finding himself pushed out because they weren’t keeping on track of the VC growth goals…

In addition to talking about the upside of revenue-fueled growth, it would be beneficial to have more people share their experience of the downside of taking VC.
