Attending the Venture Vineyard conference in Sonoma today. Lots of companies presenting, looking for money. I’ll be dropping updates throughout the day. A few notes so far from the “Seed Stage” panel:
– Jibit – online computer repair. Hard market. They didn’t mention the three competitors that I know Everdream (former client when at 10d), Centerbeam, and PC-Doctor (presenter at previous GCN conference in Reno).
– Number of times so far, that a presenting company has mentioned ‘Dubai’ – 4
– Know what your pre-money valuation is when presenting
