Really like this post. I appreciate your philosophy on investing.
“The financing we provide is solely to help you grow your business, independent of any pressure from investors and an expectation of further future financing rounds.
Microsoft, Shutterstock and Atlassian raised one time prior their IPOs. Github, Airwatch, Qualtrics, Braintree were all very profitable before taking outside funding. Basecamp sold a small ownership stake to Jeff Bezos, thennever raised again. They spit out tens of millions in profits every year.
These are our gold standards for independent businesses.”
This is great. I love this purpose for raising money. Not enough companies raise money for growth and instead raise money that ends up getting burned through.
