It’s actually quite the opposite. The venture funding usually follows a glimpse of great potential in the startup. The customers/users legitimatize the startup. It doesn’t matter how much money you throw at the startup…if they don’t bring some sort of measured value to the world, they’re a ticking time bomb.
