The Venture Capital Squeeze

The Venture Capital Squeeze "'Bring us your startups early,' said Google's speaker at the Startup School. They're quite explicit about it: they like to acquire startups at just the point where they would do a Series A round. (The Series A round is the first round of real VC funding; it usually happens in the first year.) It is a brilliant strategy, and one that other big technology companies will no doubt try to duplicate. Unless they want to have still more of their lunch eaten by Google."

Does this apply here? I'm certainly going for the boostrapping option. But if any Irish venture firm wants to give me some cash up front - sure why not!

Do any irish VC's blog?
