TheFunded.com: The Resource for Entrepreneurs.

by cyberien & 3 others
As a serial entrepreneur, I have come to realize over the years how important fundraising is and how difficult it can be. First, fundraising is far too time consuming for the entrepreneur, wasting valuable time required to grow the business. Second, the fundraising process is often like speed dating with a long-term relationship at the end where you split the proceeds. Everyone puts their best face on, and it is only when the deal is done do you get to see the real value, if any. I have personally been burned, and so have many of my friends. So, I set out a guide to help entrepreneurs find the perfect funding source for their business. Imagine if you had a comprehensive database of funding sources with practical insights from entrepreneurs who have dealt with the funds... * Search for any fund in the world by name, and the list on the left dynamically updates, showing the top rated funds first. * Browse for funds by "region" and "funding level" above, and the list of left will save your selection, allowing you to browse with next and previous links. * View fund reviews, commentary, facts, and investor contact information by clicking on the fund name. * RSS feeds of the most recent public comments from members is available to keep you up-to-date with funding source news. * Membership is reserved for entrepreneurs by invitation only. Want a membership? Members must log-in for these benefits: * Edit and Add funds and partners by clicking the respective links, but please make sure to include accurate information. * Review any fund on a 1-5 scale across five performance criteria to create an overall average fund rating. * Comment on both fund and partner performance with both public and private recommendations, and access the private commentary of others. * Agree and Disagree instantly with the comments by just clicking on the feedback links. * Invite other entrepreneurs to the community by clicking on the Invite Members link next to your login name above. Funding Level Key: * Very Small = $0.0 to $.5 MM investments * Small = $0.5 to $1.0 MM investments * Medium = $1.0 to $5.0 MM investments * Large = $5.0 to $15.0 MM investments * Very Large = $15.0 + MM investments

Justement, quel est votre rôle dans cette campagne ?

Je donne un coup de main. J’ai mon bureau tout en étant bénévole : actuellement, je consacre deux tiers de mon temps à cette campagne et un tiers à la boîte que je suis en train de créer. Je peux me le permettre financièrement grâce aux trois entreprises que j’ai vendues.

Visiblement, le poste de directeur de Six Apart Europe laisse beaucoup de temps libre. Si ça se trouve, il est en train de créer une entreprise pour relancer les U-Blogs qu'il a enterré ? Dans tous les cas, on sait ce qu'"entrepreneur" signifie dans la bouche de Loïc et ses amis les VC (Vulture Capitalist) : développeur d'entreprises jetables.
