It’s a Great Time to be an Early-Stage Entrepreneur!

In a blog post yesterday, the good folks at True Ventures wrapped up their thoughts with a stupendous assessment of the early-stage technology venture market:

We are fortunate to live in an incredibly disruptive time.

The best entrepreneurs want less from VCs today: less capital and fewer constraints in order to take more risk earlier. But the the best are demanding more in terms of new products, services, alignment, attitudes, and business practices from their investors. This means new expectations around board roles and responsibilities, more flexible deal structures, aligned efforts to add value, broader syndicates that amass the resources and participation of multiple groups and multiple angels. This means innovation in venture capital.

If you are an entrepreneur today, this is an historic time to chase your dreams. With over $1 billion in fresh seed capital in the very early stage market, what are you waiting for?

Amen.
