VC, can I buy you a drink!

from the VCs-and-their-money dept

Ryan Bethencourt writes “It seems like the valley is ticking along pretty well. Some VC’s are complaining about all of the attention they’re getting, whilst others are looking for more attention. I think a possible solution for both of these types of VC’s is to get an independent website to rate, each venture capital company on their submission to acceptance ratio.” I’m not so sure that’s necessary. VC reputations are pretty easy to grasp pretty quickly. Secondly, it’s not about the submission to acceptance ratio, it’s about getting in front of the VCs, which is all about connections. Getting into a VC where you don’t have a reference is next to impossible. And, even if you do make it, chances are nothing will come of it.
