Any VC who tells you they won't invest because of the accounting software you use should make you exit the room faster than they ask you to leave. It's a preposterous comment and POV. but it does reflect the most disturbing trend I see in startups today. VCs play far too large an operational role in the businesses they invest in. Perhaps that's why some of them like investing in 20something technology types to whom they can easily dictate to and control because they don't really know jack about business to begin with.
But at the end of the day, as long as the invoices go out, payments are timely, and a balance sheet/income statement is produced readily and accurately, that's all an investor should ever concern themselves about wrt accounting. It's just amazing to me how deeply VCs tinker with their portfolio companies these days, and it's counterproductive in most cases. If they want to run companies, they should go start them.
Color me as looking for quiet, patient money for my clients. Anyone out here represent quiet, patient money?
