David Sacks, who just sold his company Yammer to Microsoft for $1.2 billion, falls squarely in the camp of founders who think they should raise as much money as they possibly can. Others advise against it, saying that raising capital has turned into a goal in and of itself rather than an albatross that limits one’s freedom. Sacks’ argument is that companies need the money so they can grow as quickly as possible, because if an idea is good enough, there are likely dozens of competitors coming to take you out and speed is the only thing that’ll lead to a win.
