What’s the best way to negotiate with an investor?

My First Investment – AVC

That deal taught me a few big lessons. The first is to avoid complicated deals. It seemed like such a smart deal structure but it really wasn’t. The second is to avoid fast talking salesy entrepreneurs who don’t know how to operate a business. That more or less described the entrepreneur who was running SDC when we did the initial deal.
