What I’ve Learned About Venture Funding | Bothsides of the Table

I’ve seen companies who raise the mega round after they’ve truly started to scale and put scale on steroids. I’ve seen the companies that had they not raised the big round would have evaporated. How can it be that over-funding is bad, bad, bad and then the best possible outcome? And what is the inflection point? It’s subjective. I’ve seen directly just how much capital can separate the winners from the losers when raised at the right time.
