I spoke to a group of women entrepreneurs a few weeks ago, and one asked me “why do you need to raise VC?”
And the answer is “you don’t.”
The vast majority of entrepreneurs out there don’t raise VC. Many don’t raise any money to start their businesses.
I’m sure I have posted this here before, probably back in 2012, but I thought I’d post it again.
It makes the point that you don’t need VC to be an entrepreneur pretty nicely.
