Hello, my friends call me Derek or DJ.  Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and my firm.  I am the Founder and CEO of Intrepid Wealth Partners, one of four companies I have been involved with and am leading the virtual financial advisor movement.

I am married to my lovely wife Amanda.  We have a 7 year old son (going on 15!) Neary, and an English Setter we recently rescued from Lebanon!  We love to travel, meet new people, and try new and different types of food.

I am an American and Irish dual national, having been born in Dublin, Ireland.  My son also enjoys the benefits of dual citizenship, however my wife was born and raised in Minnesota.   Our travels throughout the world have taught us that most people are genuinely good and want what is best for themselves, their families, and others.  We have had the privilege of meeting some great people along the way, who have helped expand our horizons, both professionally and personally.

What are some of the disadvantages to taking venture capital?
100% of people found this answer helpful

Interesting question,

Some of the potential disadvantages I have heard from my founder/entrepreneur clients are the following:

  • Giving up equity in your company
  • Having the venture firm take a board seat on your company
  • Having to answer to investors who don't fully grasp your business
  • When taking additional rounds of funding your will lose more equity and dilute your current investors
  • Possibly being pushed out of your company at some point.

Although there are certainly potential disadvantages, there are also plenty of advantages.  Do your homework!

Best Regards,
