NEW LESSON

If VCs Want To Survive, They'll Need To Evolve
(and so will entrepreneurs)

The Venture Capital industry has always been slow to change. Ask any founder outside of Silicon Valley who has raised VC money what they thought about their fundraise and you'll quickly discover that the pattern is usually the same.

1. Going into the fundraise, the management team was cautiously optimistic.

2. About a quarter-to-half-way into the raise, it became the worst decision they'd ever made.

3. The ones who succeeded never want to do it again, even though they know they have to.

That process is starting to change, little and late, but there's hope.

At the time of writing this post, Social Capital had just made public its new business plan to fund - or at least provide feedback to - startups from anywhere in the world, based on an application and access to the key metrics of the business.

This is a smart plan. If it works.

The original content on Teaching Startup -- written, video, and audio -- is based on the Grid: Five components of each of the five basic concepts of startup (Stages, Roles, Kinds, Funding, and Reasons).

This isn't the same old standard, boring, generalized startup content. This is straight, to-the-point, what entrepreneurs talk about. It's what we wished we knew when we started and it's what we discuss when we get together for coffees and beers.
