Reprise: Venture, Angel or Private Placement

Had an interesting discussion with a journalist about Reg D private placement offerings (and how they pretty much all suck) today and it got me thinking about the below handy guide I had put together.  This post originally appeared on September 4th 2010.  Enjoy!


Seems like there is funding in the private company space once again; virtually everywhere you look these days, deals are happening. With that in mind, I thought I’d put together this quick guide for understanding the various types of funding and investing options that are out there.

Good luck and be careful, intrepid investors!
