Relationships with Angels and Venture Capitalists

Mark Suster, Serial Entrepreneur

"Raising venture capital is worse than marriage," says investor and serial entrepreneur Mark Suster, noting that you can at least get divorced when it comes to marriage. Suster expresses surprise that a startup team would be willing to accept a funding partnership, without taking the time to truly get to know the angel or VC. This business relationship is long, intimate, and permanent, so both parties should carefully choose their partners.
