The price of your startup
This is a picture I took from my window apartment holding a Brazilian reais coin of R$0,10
Is almost nothing if you exchange to US Dollars and this is the price you will get for your startup if you take too earlier VC funds. Trust me I killed one startup because of that and was returned to Nothing.
Now running a new one using bootstrapping approach I feel more comfortable and confident that I this time I will not kill it again.
