Grow with control
If you go the traditional VC route, your chances of becoming a household name are definitely there. However, there’s the risk that a ‘mid-level’ success is much less likely. Some VCs will pressure you to take a 1/100 chance of reaching a $10 billion exit over a 1/2 chance of reaching a $100 million exit. Are those the same trade-offs you would make?
