Marc was kind enough to comment on the post related to the Business 2.0 article. Here is his opinion on Business 2.0 current views on VCs:
"Forget the VCs: They're still stingy these days...
where should i start
1) not every business should be VC funded
2) should should put as litle money as need in a business, not more, stingy is good
3) we (VC) invest in business to build, not in business to be flipped (even if we all dream of quick exit at night)"
Sounds reasonable to me. The only point, Marc, that may deserve a bit more explanation for those who are not familiar with the Venture Capitalists world is your first point: Do you suggest there is a "business profile" that does qualify for VC funding? What is that profile then? Would be nice to see, if any, a typology of business profiles/financing vehicles and to get a sense of the risks (on both sides) of an improper match.
