Zephyr, funny but scarily true. I do see & talk to a lot of French VCs and feel that some of them are changing. I'll keep you posted.


The investment community in France is very comparable to the French banking community. They are willing to lend you an umbrella if the weather is dry and if you give them your pants in exchange. They'll keep both if it begins to rain.
I am happy to hear the VCs are moving toword risk sharing but I am afraid it is still a 90/10 risk split.
Another 25 years and the French VC community we be ready to move from risk to venture... eer. Maybe they won't.
