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.
