Seed Investing is Taking Off
I just wrote about how Reuters mentioned that Seed Investors are Making Money and Why You Care. Then I read this article entitled The Seed/Micro-VC Trend: A Boom, Not A Bubble by Jonathon Tower who is a VC himself as a Managing Director at Citron Capital. His blog is a great read.
To understand why seed investing and micro investing, as Jonathon also calls it, you need to read his entire article linked above. It is an incredibly well thought out piece which states:
In summation, there are fundamental changes at work in the venture industry which give significant and lasting advantages to seed and Micro-VC funds that can exploit this market opportunity. This “boom” in seed and Micro-VC activity is not so much a boom as it is a seismic shift in how technology companies will be founded and funded for the foreseeable future.
I have to agree for many reasons. Mainly because my business partner and I have been working for three years consulting for many online companies from our home offices in different states providing the best possible service to customers and spinning off our own micro companies utilizing talent from all over the world at a fraction of the cost it took to get started up 10 years ago.
