Scott Cook and Tom Proulx of Intuit approached Gordon for advice on what venture capital to accept.  Gordon recommended they accept the funding based on the two lowest valuations for the company because the offers came from John Doerr and Burt McMurty, two of the best venture capitalists in the business.  Even at the lower valuation, Gordon predicted that the leadership from these two men would more than make up for the lost profits in the long run.
