On Globalization & Venture Capital

More questions than you can think of!

In my continuing series of FAQs for Entrepreneurs, I came across this gem…fellow blogger Ventureblogalist‘s wiki titiled VC101 with some great links on various VC and Entrepreneurship related topics here  (Hat Tip: Max)

Two of my favourites:

Microsoft will acquire my company” and “VC Primer from an Entrepreneurs’s POV” 

On James Quist has a nice story with some guidelines on bootstrapping and raising capital. As he says:

During our journey, we identified three important guidelines for successfully bootstrapping a company.

Guideline #1: Before starting a business and taking capital, validate your products with real customer pain

Guideline #2: Bootstrap for the right reasons, raise capital for the right reasons

Guideline #3: When you decide to raise capital, find good partners to help grow your business major shareholder.

Another nice one: A basic (and simply explained) introduction to venture capital by Tom Smith, Partner at Mid-Atlantic Venture Funds…and finally, Rodi Guidero of VantagePoint has a nice list of FAQs on’s site:

Meanwhile, Rhiannon Evans, who runs TiE’s Mentoring programme has very kindly linked this category on the TiE Members Page…Thanks Rhiannon…

Comments welcome, as always (especially from any entrepreneurs out there).
