The VC culture has puzzled me my whole adult life. I understand in some cases (like a free product that collects valuable user data from a large user base like Facebook) but stuff other than that? I don’t get it. I bet people even second guess themselves at the thought of skipping fund raising tens of thousands of dollars. For $0 we can start a print on demand business these days.
I enjoyed reading this post and the confidence this just gave me in my thoughts. Now to try to move some t-shirts…again.
