A Summer Romance Between Founder and Venture Capitalist
Here’s a summer blockbuster for you: In a world where many entrepreneurs see venture capital as a necessary evil, three men look past term-sheet tussles to build a new company, and make friendships along the way.
“Venture Capital: A Love Story.” Starring: Keith Smith as The CEO, Jeff Malek as The CTO and Brad Feld as The Investor.
In a 1,700-word blog post Tuesday, Smith, CEO of BigDoor Media, nearly wrote the screenplay behind a recent funding round. He crafted the tale of meeting Foundry Group’s Feld and how the VC’s unorthodox approach to learning about the company ultimately cemented Smith’s desire to have him as an investor.
