WSJ: Web Start-Ups Get Upper Hand Over Investors

WSJ.com logo

In an article published today (“Web Start-Ups Get Upper Hand Over Investors”), the Wall Street Journal reported (emphasis added) that “As venture capitalists scramble to get a piece of Silicon Valley’s new Web boom, entrepreneurs … are finding they have the upper hand.

Here are some of the points the article makes about the latest Web boom:

  • As VCs search for the next Facebook or Twitter, some entrepreneurs are positioned to have a greater say about how much they raise and deal terms.
  • Bidding among VCs is driving up the price of many deals.
  • Angel investors are driving up the prices of the tiniest early-stage companies.
  • Some entrepreneurs are taking advantage of the situation by seeking the best advisors rather than the greatest amount of money.
