Once Youve Raised a Series A, Add an Outside Director

Jan 7 5:24pm Hunter Walk
I’ve seen an unexpected benefit to founders of Homebrew’s ability to serve on your Board from Seed until B Round — you get an easy opportunity to add an outside Director earlier than most startups. Let me ‘splain. If you have a seed fund and/or founders who aren’t interested in creating a Board together, you’re likely waiting until Series […]...

Byron Wiens Ten Surprises for 2017

Jan 7 12:22pm A Silicon Valley Insider
(B) There are a few long-timers on Wall Street that I will stop whatever I am doing to listen to them on Bloomberg or CNBC. One of them is Byron Wien from the Blackstone Group (another one was Barton Biggs was unfortunately left us in 2012). This is the 32nd year, Mr. Wien has given his views on a number of economic, financial market, and political surprises for the coming year. Mr. Wien defines a “surprise” as an event which the average investor would only assign a one out of three chance of taking place but which Mr. Wien believes is “probable”, having a better than 50\% likelihood of happening. And never forget that predictions must always be taken as predictions!Byron’s Ten Surprises for 2017 are as follows:1. Still brooding ab...

This is something I often tell founders and CEOs when they sense that something is wrong in their companies but they can’t quite figure out what it is. Depending on what you think it might be, pick a change and see what new information you get from that. Change the organization. Change the pricing. Change the marketing me...

Meaningful Exits for Founders

Dec 22 5:04pm BRYCE DOT VC
For an industry that doesn’t do it for the money, we sure talk about money an awful lot in the world of startups.A few posts were written this past week diving deeper into the numbers that drive VC returns which, in turn, drive behavior in startups who’ve raised money from VCs.One post, written by Samuel Gil, outlined what is considered a meaningful exit for VCs. According to Sam’s math, a meaningful exit for a fund should have the ability to return 33\% of a given VCs fund, a “home run” exit should be able to return their entire fund in a single investment.This is a helpful visual he put together to show the resulting math behind meaningful exits at various fund sizes:Across all of these scenarios, the smallest meaningful exit for the tiniest fund is a purchase price of $85M. Now, we don’t know much in this scenario beyond the 20\% owned by one fund. We don’t know how many rounds this company has raised, how many other VCs are on the cap table, nor how much the founders own.(sidebar- most $50M funds would kill for 20\% ownership these days. 5\%-10\% range is much more likely after the initial round of funding and dilutes rather quickly in successive rounds as reserves for pro rata vary wildly by firm).Another post from Capshare surfaced this week touching on that last bit about founder ownership at various levels of VC funding. Specifically, this post highlighted, after having analyzed over 5,000 VC backed cap tables, that founder dilution is fairly predictable based on the rounds raised by a given company. There are plenty of graphs to pour over in the post, but the summary reads as follows:If your company exits around Series D, you can expect the following splits:Founder ownership: 11-17\%Other employees: 17-21\%Investors: 66-68\%The data suggests startups generally have 2-3 founders so divide that number by the number of founders, and that’s the predictable founder ownership level of a Series D funded company (in the Capshare post the Series D valuation was $210M).Reframing those numbers another way, a founder selling at the Series D price of $210M,...
