This is a great thing about startups. When every dime is precious, and if it’s your dime, you tend to be very efficient with capital.
This should never change once you have acquired other people’s money (OPM).
They have invested in you because you have convinced them your idea will provide them with a return.
Make sure you choose the right funding partners and when you do, take care of them. Take care of their money. Treat like it’s yours. Provide them with a return.
Everyone get’s to eat before the cook.
