The Future of Startup Funding.

Paul Graham makes some interesting points about the trends that are starting to emerge in the investing space.  I will be the first to admit that my experience with investors and investment rounds is pretty limited and largely theoretical; I’ve seen the process from afar.

Since joining ProFounder and getting a much broader view of the fundraising landscape I tend to agree with the points in the article.  Moreover, I’m excited that we are addressing a number of the points made specifically around speed and traction.  ProFounder puts the raise on a timeline with clear milestones along the way.  There also isn’t a notion of a “lead investor”.  The investors are recruited by the business owner explicitly which puts the most motivated person in control of the investor flow.
