Thanks for this posting. Could have saved me a lot of frustration if being there before 6 months. Now I understand these points. 101 of start up business as I think is show me money, then ask me more if u can get much more. Some of the companies (including some of DFJ companies) in my space, I look at them and wonder if they don't have revenue model yet how did they raise any money at all ?
But again, looking at others raising does not solve the problem.
Anyway, Thanks again.

As my caddie said after my 5th drive off the tee sideways (it was a bad day), "Sir, when you hit the ball, it's a mystery ain't it?" Lot of nuances and luck beyond the macro things discussed unfortunately...
