Terri Krivosha, partner in Maslon's Business & Securities Group, is quoted in the June 22, 2016, Minnesota Business magazine article titled, "The Minnesota Money Game." The article offers a "comprehensive look at the general financing considerations that any budding entrepreneur needs to take into account, the pros and cons of various common financing options, and the overall strengths and shortcomings of our fair state's early-stage funding ecosystem."
In a discussion of whether or not to accept financing, Terri states, "Once your company accepts outside financing, it's not really your company anymore. If you own 100%, you are your own board." The article states, "Though every startup is different, Krivosha — like virtually every impartial early-stage business expert — advises entrepreneurs to bootstrap until they can't anymore, whether because they're not willing to invest any more of their own liquid assets or because they want to scale faster than bootstrapping allows."
