WSJ on the VC vs Angels battle

Filed under: news,Uncategorized — Christian @ 8:14 am

Tomio Geron of the Wall Street Journal’s “Venture Capital Dispatch” blog posted a fascinating article a few days ago about how Venture Capitalists are agreeing to inflated valuations of internet startups, in an effort to fend off Angel Investors from the same deals.

Since our niche at RevenueLoan is serving companies that already have $1M to $10M in annualized revenues, this battle between Angels and VCs doesn’t involve us. But it illustrates the battles for capital that are raging now.

It also puts RevenueLoan in a good position to work with these companies after they launch, and they may need a cash infusion (without further equity dilution!) to bump their business up to the next level.

Read Mr. Geron’s full article – A Price Hike To Seed Web Start-Ups – at the Wall Street Journal’s web site.
