Last night a friend tipped me off to this in e-mail. It’s a thorough, detailed description of one interesting company’s long and difficult Venture Capital Process. It’s written by Rand Fishkin, CEO of SEOmoz.

It’s definitely a long and winding road. Rand warns us at the beginning that this is not an ordinary blog post. That’s certainly true.

I think it should be required reading for anybody who is interested in outside investment for a startup.
