As a conclusion I want to emphasis, again, the fact that the VC path is not better or more prestigious than the bootstrap one. Working on the VC side myself my first aim is to be aligned with the founders we work with.
If you’re alone, you don’t have the power to fight back. The startup and their new investors can pressure you to renegotiate. So don’t be a herd animal when making an investment decision, but move with a pack when you do.
There are exceptions like Dollar Shave Club. Their early investors had good returns. But you should only invest in technology as a rule of thumb.
