But I didn't fully understand the justification for that, was it in the article and I missed it?
Is it just that:
- friends get annoyed with you if they get diluted,
- and that eventually the money runs out and you'd want to have investors with basically unlimited funds so you can go back to them for future rounds?
Or were there other reasons?
His point on Clarity is also spot on:
> A Pro invests as much money, as many times, for as long as required for the situation to attain Clarity. This Clarity allows only two outcomes, Dead or Liquid. When a Pro declines the invitation to invest in a follow-on round, it means they’ve reached Clarity: In the eyes of the Pro who declines to invest, the company is Dead, their initial stake is worthless. Write it off and move on, no tears, no recriminations.
