I'm constantly bombarded with junk email about investor pitch nights, or fundraising 101.  You see founders who proudly list how much their past companies have raised.

But I rarely see anyone in the tech startup world talk about how profitable their company is - not how much revenue, but how profitable.  Profit doesn't even really seem to be pushed as that much of a priority in any of the founder education series that I see.

I have my own theories, but am curious to hear your thoughts about why fundraising is given higher importance in the tech scene than profitability?
