The other 99% of entrepreneurs

Mitra Sramana has a very interesting post on ReadWriteWeb. 

What is explained in this article correspond very much to the reasons why XWiki choose to stay independent and I can only agree that the twitto-blogospheres focuses way too much on funding of startups that has not necessarly proven anything about the viability of the funded company. 

It would be great that there is more focus on successful companies that did not require any funding. These companies have a much higher change to continue to bring value to their customers than funded companies that will necessarly require an exit and will have to go through many risks once they are merged into a bigger company.

Articles like Mitra's are great to raise peoples understanding.
