  • problem31 said: Why is 99.997% of the entrepreneurs in the venture to avoid? Author: Dileep Rao translation: Nike Air Jordan 6 Women any arts [i horse REVIEW VCs are good it? The authors think that Nike Air Jordan Women you may have your right to cede control of the business to investors, and their interests may follow your own interests do not match. Venture capital who want Nike Air Max Flyknit Air Max Men high returns, Supra Skytop IV and this is likely to sacrifice their own interests entrepreneurs. Take a look at this article to your proposal. I have said that most entrepreneurs never cast from a wind to get venture capital limited partnership. But some people still have Reebok CL Chi Kaze hope. So for you, the key question is, Nike Air Presto Shoes if you get a venture capital investment intentions, should Nike Air Max Lunar 90 Men you accept it. First of all need to keep in mind is that access to venture does not mean you have to hit a home run, or among the Regal. It all Nike Air Max means that you may Nike Air Max LUNAR90 C3.0 Men have control of your business ceded to investors, with their interests may not match your own interests. Venture capital who want high returns, and this is likely to sacrifice their own interests entrepreneurs. Second, even if the wind betting information, you SALOMON may be rich, but you may have lost control over some great ideas (both good ideas can come up with for a lifetime, not many people, most people even a nor). Most entrepreneurs I met firmly believe that their companies will eventually succeed, they will therefore be making a fortune. Otherwise, why should they Nike Air Jordan venture out, stand to create a new company to be subjected to hardships it? For many people, the business purpose is to hit Nike Air Max 2014 Men a home run. Homer entrepreneurs and venture capital eyes of the Holy Grail - the entrepreneurial dream woven material. If you can hit a note, you are likely to become extremely wealthy, the reporters will tell you never-ending saga, everyone will seek your advice (even if you are not familiar with Nike Shox some topics). I hope you get to invest in Nike SB Shoes their business Nike Air Max or finance your Foundation. These transactions can make your name frequently exposed. You will be subject to a variety of meals, and hailed as a genius. Of course, if your stock slump, all good things will be halted. Homer refers to a similar eBay (eBay) such enterprises: a venture capital fund to which the company invested approximately $ 7 million, 18 months after a $ 2.4 billion gain in return. Nike Shoes Nike Air Max 2015 Women Global It is said that each of the partners of the Fund's per capita earned millions of dollars from the deal. When this investment myth happens, I just joined academia, those of my MBA students to embrace almost all the ambition to become Nike Nike Air Max 95 Prem Tape Men Air Max 2014 Women a venture capital people, this passion has always been a harbinger of the coming doom. And so it did. But the reality is, even the selection of companies to take a large number of extremely Air Jordan Heels Nike Air Max 2015 Men stringent standards, but the real success of Nike Air Jordan 11 Women the venture capital people are still rare. Who had been a venture Howard Anderson (Howard Anderson) noted that the venture industry's 'consensus' Yes, access to finance every 100 companies, 20 Nike Zoom Soldier VIII will be completely eliminated, 20 will be operating properly, 40 belong It does not slip, only 20 can be regarded as real winners. Famous writer Gary Hamel (Gary Hamel) estimates that every ten in venture capital, 'five will be completely purchasing as a loss, three would get sort of success, one can obtain an initial investment to double return (if quit after four years, will achieve an average annual internal rate of return of 19%, if after five years, quit, will achieve an average annual internal rate of return of 15%), there is a case to get 50-100 times the Nike Shoes return on investment (For the purposes of 50 times the return, if quit after four years, the internal rate of return of 166%, quit after five years if the internal rate of return of 119 percent). 'Industry insiders estimate that in obtaining venture Cheap Nike Free Nike Air Jordan 5 Women Outlet capital companies, about Only 1% to 2% ultimately homers. There are reportedly about 18 percent are among the successful enterprises. Approximately 20-40% is said to total failure, the remaining companies are there was a certain degree of loss or barely break even. Every year, about 3,000 to 3,500 companies received venture capital, but the first time the annual venture capital companies even more than this figure. National Venture Capital Association (The National Venture Capital Association) estimates that in 2010 about 36% of start-ups venture capital for the first time. According to 36% of the calculation, the annual get venture capital for the first time there are about 1,080 to 1,260 Nike Air Jordan 4 Women companies at home, with this number multiplied by 1% to 2% is 11-25. Netscape (Netscape), co-founder Marc Andreessen's top venture capital people (Mark Andreessen) pointed out that only about 15 per year worth investing in start-ups. This means that your company stand out from all of these start-ups, about 0.000018 (11 / 600,000) to 0.00004 (25 / 600,000) between the probability of eventually becoming so-called 'home run' enterprise. This means that if there is no venture capital, your business may develop better, the likelihood between 99.996 to 99.998%! If access to venture back, your business can not become a home run, you make a big Choi's chances of winning will be greatly reduced. If you venture fails, to remain in the period of this enterprise (assuming that the new leadership would also like to keep you), you may be able to receive a salary. You have to watch their children by a number of people Nike Air Max 95-360 (Mens) did not know upbringing. If your business success, but not really a home run, the venture capital people are very likely to lead to the withdrawal of their funds, along with a return (because they are investing in preferred shares), you may be able and venture capital people and the management team hired a new CEO to share with the rest Air Jordan Outlet of the return, if there is a surplus of words. You may also lose a person the opportunity to build a business and see his name frequently exposed. My view: people like to ask a promising venture entrepreneurs, they are willing to have eBay have a 10% stake, it is willing to have a failure of all the shares of the enterprise. If you will become a home Nike Zoom Soldier VII run have full grasp, access to venture capital is probably a good thing. Otherwise, you are a great opportunity to use your gambling - not many people can get two chances. This is Steve Jobs (Steve Jobs) Why is a genius of reason. Please note, we often read about those fabulous story when the wind cast, you always find again and again, the protagonist of these stories back and forth is that several companies. This is a reason: to hit a home run, after all, a very small number of companies. Before looking for venture capital, first ask yourself if there is no venture capital, you can still succeed. If so, not looking up. If you really need venture capital, before seeking venture capital, you can take your business to a new level? You make money, perhaps it depends on it. 8:38PM 08/13/15
