Just for Fun: The Funded

I've avoided looking through this site for a few months now, but I caved a few nights ago and now I'm addicted: TheFunded.com has been getting lots of press the last few months as the online place "where entrepreneurs strike back!" The site contains ratings and comments about VCs, the fund-raising process and even has an amusing "Letters to Funds" section. Canadian investors have been added to the mix, although the comments are light.

Membership is restricted, but there is still a significant amount of content to cull through even if you don't want to cough up the annual fee. Next time you've finsihed watching Battlestar Galactica reruns, cruise on over and see what you think.

Finally, a humbling site, for VC's. I still remember my first pitch like it was yesterday, being so nervous I had to lie down afterwards and then hurled several hours later.

After that first pitch the rest of the 40 pitches was a piece of cake, that stayed down!

I wish "the funded" was here back then because there were several eccentric and pompous VC's that I could write a book about and would love to throw the book at.

I wish people would give VC Experts some due credit. They just launched a database that gives specific industry comparables, including terms and valuations, that have never been available before. As an attorney working with emerging companies, I use it frequently to review other companies charters (yes www.pedatacenter.com has them available for download), but more importantly to negotiate valuations.
