The best capital to inject into your growing business, with the lowest cost, best terms and least dilution, is the capital you never have to raise or borrow.  External financing is a very resource intensive process, requiring an investment of time and energy which takes you away from the more important task of satisfying customers and growing a business.  In addition, the opportunity cost associated with a financing round can be significant and is often ignored by an entrepreneur, or at least underestimated, as many later stage technology entrepreneurs follow the “must get financing script”.  Finally, as with any monetary transaction, accepting debt or equity brings not only cash, but a partner, whether you like it or not.  For many companies, it’s just not worth it, particularly if there is a better way.

Image 1a 20160112 CTDMy parents were hard-working vegetable famers in western Washington, but making ends meet was always a struggle.

My classmates laughed at my hand-me-down clothes and logger boots with holes in the soles, but I never went to bed hungry and my mother kissed me goodnight every night until I left for college.

Unknown“Simon. What do you personally invest in?”

This is a question I’m often asked, particularly at the start of the new year.

I’m a value investor, which means I buy high quality assets “on sale” for less than their intrinsic value.

This includes private companies, real estate, productive agriculture…

And it also includes public companies (stocks).

Now, I’ve been publicly critical of the dangers of investing in the stock market...

But value investing is the exception.

We quickly came up with our goals for 1982, and literally scribbled them down on the back of a napkin at the bar. It was the first time I had set annual goals, and have not stopped since.
