> A cap table of a hundred $10,000 cheques (I've seen these), even if all are from accredited investors, will have a harder time raising venture capital than one with a handful of early backers.


Doesn't sound impossible to me. I was involved with a company at one point that routinely hit its customers up for small-time investment. Never saw the cap table, but I'm sure it was loooooong.

(I originally wrote "doesn't sound crazy," but in fact it sounds totally crazy. Just not impossible.)
