• Former Uber CEO Says Investor Lawsuit A 'Public And Personal Attack'

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The ousted chief executive officer of Uber Technologies Inc called a lawsuit filed against him by one of the company's top investors a "public and personal attack" without merit, according to court documents filed late on Thursday. Venture capital firm Benchmark Capital, which says it owns 13 percent of Uber and controls 20 percent of the voting power, sued former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick last week to force him off the board, where he still has a seat, and rescind his remaining power there, citing fraud and deception. Benchmark has no proof for its accusations, the documents say, and the legal quarrel should take place in arbitration. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/Avno8uCtiBw/us-uber-lawsuit-idUSKCN1AY0EI http://www.wochit.com This video was prod...

At TheFamily, we believe that anyone can become a great entrepreneur. Find more info here: http://www.thefamily.co/ By Zach Coelius https://www.linkedin.com/in/zachcoelius/ Are you an early stage startup & ready to raise some $$? 💸 If you're new to the VC game, I bet you'll have a ton of questions. So it's great to hear some tips from the guy who's been on both sides of the table! 😉 We were pleased to welcome Zachery Coelius, an early stage technology investor and 4x entrepreneur from SF. His investments include Cruise Automation (bought by GM for $1B+), Branch Metrics, SkySafe and a dozen other startups. His last venture was Triggit, for which he raised over $25m in venture capital and exited to Gravity4 in 2015. Zach ran Triggit for 10 years, growing it from 4 to 60 employees and over $30m in revenue. ⚡️ Notes from the presentation: I. Raising at the beginning II. Raising when there is traction and what that means III. Now you have a business, thoughts, warnings and a few pitfalls 1. Your Baby a. Thoughts on raising - Who you are - Traction: Revenue, Users, data, customers, contracts, something measurable - Technology: See it, touch it, measure it. It works b. Three kinds of investors - Friends and family: they know you - Smart money: they know the space, the technology, - Professional Money: they know revenue and spreadsheets c. Raising from Friends and family - You will probably lose all their money - Tell them that, its not worth it to lose them - Be super fair - Spend their money like it’s the most precious thing ever. d. The first money is to get to traction. If you can get it 2. Smart Money is there for traction a. The idea is rarely, rarely, rarely meaningful - Really it is usually worthless b. Validation of an idea is priceless - Validation is people using an MVP, - Its customers signing, letters and LOIs, - Its people who will get on the phone and clamor for it c. With validation comes the ability to drill in - We can figure out what exactly to build - What not to build - We can ask hard questions - We can be specific. Super important d. Smart money knows your market cold - You have to know it better. - You have to be the best. e. Traction is what matters - Revenue, is easy - Potential revenue 1. Users 2. Data, 3. Signed deals - Give me something to get excited about f. Product Market Fit i. The Brick g. Social Proof i. Reid h. Know your investors beforehand - Help them by sharing market insights and your story at the same time - Asymmetric time - Don’t ask for meetings unless it is an inflection point or it will be interesting or fun for the investor. PROVIDE VALUE. 3. Professional Money a. It comes in many shades - VCs the smartest pro money - Dumb VC money - Debt - Banks b. Its all about the numbers - If they can’t get excited about the business from numbers you can forget about it c. The moat, the margin, the path to profitability all matter. - The game has changed from getting traction to building a business d. Be the market leader - If you are not you are screwed. Find a niche e. The relationship matters much less here 4. Final thoughts - Raising money tends to be binary. Its either stupidly easy or its impossible. If it feels like its hard stop doing it and get back to work - Raising money comes in stages for a reason. It is about inflection points where every things changes - Always raise as much as you can. The only time there is an exception to this it will be so obvious that the question will be if you should even raise at all. Call me when that happens.
