The number 1 consideration when raising venture capital

Brett Hurt, CEO – data.world

The number one thing that matters when you are taking funding is who the partner is.

Are they someone you truly want to get married to?

Because it is like a marriage when you bring a board member on. Especially, if they are the board member that has been your lead backer.

In terms of how much funding to take, its a function of how fast you want to accelerate into an outcome.

That is the best way to think of venture capitalists.
