Read Time: 14 minutes
This clarifies a lot of the basics. Are you planning on covering more of how vc works? Interested in learning more terminology (term-sheet comes to mind)
Well written. Didn't feel it like 14mins while reading. Looking forward for the next one. Can you write about Indian VCs and with examples of start ups they have invested, success stories. We had the theory class now, can we ask for real life Indian examples and anecdotes. Most of the blogs mention about US based start-up companies which becomes difficult to relate. I was actually happy to see the mention of OYO and BYJUS in this one. Cheers! More power to you guys
Wonderful. Got the basics! :)
You know I was just searching for something that can summarize VC, and there was this article. Thank you for making a layman's life simpler!
Hi, if Arthur invested $10,000 and got back $8.2 million, how is it a 130% overall return?
Very nicely explained and easily understandable by layman.
Thanks for some brilliant and simple writing. I have one question regarding funding. Why do startups which won't make any profits in forseeable future, attract huge funding? Example: Flipkart, Zomato etc. From what I can understand there doesn't seem to be a feasible exit for a layman.
Thanks for this. Liked the simplicity of the language ! When I saw that read time is 14 mins, I wondered if I will last that long. Last I did thanks to the lucid explanation. Looking forward to the future articles :)
Awesome ,very clear.perfectly put in a readers perspective
Well explained , really an educative and interesting write up
Whoa whoa.... Simply simplified... Next round on series of funding please
Very very informative... Cleared the concepts very amazingly..
Very simple yet detailed explanation. Looking forward to the next in this series!
Wonderful read. Thank you. Could you tell me what software or website you use to make these graphs? They are very neat and a great visual representation. Thanks!
Superb work on your part. Concepts sounded extremely simple and easy. All except in one part which I wasn't able to fully follow was the example you gave regarding the investment of 10 million and why a 10x returns on the same (there, I have exposed my vulnerability towards numbers shamelessly!!)
