A number of entrepreneurs and Members have asked for a copy of the slides used in a keynote today at TheNextWeb event in Amsterdam. Here is a good synopsis of the talk, and a copy of the slides is posted below.
The purpose of my talk is to give a brief synopsis of views expressed by the Members of ThFunded.com after reading approximately 10,000 posts, extensive discussion, and nearly 100 added term sheets over the last 45 days. Since the 6,500+ CEOs that comprise the Membership can agree or disagree with posts, the job of sorting relevant points to make in a talk is simplified. Ultimately, there is no formula to close a financing, but the goal is to help outline some "rules of the game" and "wisdom of the masses" in a concise format. Enjoy!PRIVATE: Members Only
