Takin’ VC Money (Money Cash IPO’s) — An Anthem For Startups

…this song is dedicated
to all the startups out there
staying caffeinated
pulling all nighters
and trying to launch something amazing

Maybe we can meet up with Ashton Kutcher
see if we agree on some plans for the future
have a drink with Fred Wilson
see if we can sign a deal
or you think Seqouia’s gonna find another 40 mil
It’d be great to secure some investment ends
straight from seeds to 10x dividends
Never complacent, you say exit? we say yes
now we’re in the basement
working with Node.js
While half these other rappers
chase broads
and sip on hennesey
we’re tailing our logs
and drinking 5 hour energy!
3 AM whiteboards and lightbulb moments
this is our time
right now so we should own it
I long for delivering
and its prod we get it in
and we have no problem with the thought of pivoting
we know what our vision is
and we don’t want to waste it
we remain driven so we
continue to chase it

heyo we’re taking VC Money
all we’re tryin’ to do is get some new seed funding yeah
Money Cash & IPO’s
thats how this action goes
heyo we’re taking VC Money

might as well send a little note over to techcrunch
maybe get an article
thats posted by the next lunch
time to get the word out
we’re ready for beta
limited at first so our servers
don’t crater
yeah we’ve got swag
but its the bad stuff from conferences
you better skip the bag
I’ll just carry my accomplishments
hooked up with Dealmaker
and now we’re live at GROW Conf
prepping for a great night
and hanging at the GROW launch
and tonight you know we’ll brush shoulders // we will brush shoulders
with some angels
not charlies kind
but the ones with the bank rolls
that believe in our team
and also see our market fit
excited by our dream
and they need to be a part of it
if you haven’t heard of us yet
we can flip you our deck
we’ll trade a cheque for convertible debt
I said…if you haven’t heard of us yet
we’ll trade a cheque for convertible debt
