Does anyone enjoy startup fundraising?

I think a lot of us eventually sort of enjoy it because (x) we get pretty good at it, and (y) it’s a solveable game.

After a while, you get pretty darn good at pitching the story, the team, the traction, the vision.  You get really, really good.

It’s sales.  A super-nichey kind of sales, but sales.  Selling stock.  And winning in sales is always kind of fun.

It’s just distracting vs. running the core business.  And diluting.
