Services or Cash?

March 17, 2010

I came across an interesting article today on ReadWriteWeb, which polls readers and asks, “What is the Best Way to Support Startups, Services or Cash?”


The article and poll discuss whether services or monetary funding is most beneficial for startups who are in the process of building a product and bringing it to market, and although OpenView invests in expansion stage companies, it still made me think about our model, which involves various support services from the OpenView Labs team along with venture funding.
Which do you think is most essential to supporting your business, services or cash?
