This site was born out of the frustration of climbing the steep learning curves in venture capital. Combined with similar curves for company formation and early round investing, we see even more opportunity for making it easier to understand the mechanics of startup life.

We explain the topics side by side with working, interactive examples that clearly illustrate the concepts we’re describing. We will focus our efforts on this site to flatten the learning curve as much as possible.
