By Jerrod Engelberg, Katie Kalmikoff and Kevin Lee  •  Dec 22, 2016

Over the past 4 years, the FundersClub team has invested in over 200 startups and talked with over 10,000. With that much exposure into the startup scene we've seen and learned a lot. With VC being a blackbox to many founders, we aim to change that. With our new podcast Transparent VC, join us as we divulge and discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly regarding startups, the tech industry, and venture capital.

In our first episode "Founders, Beware of Super Pro-Rata" we discuss the dangers of super pro-rata, why founders should avoid it and what they can do if they've already raised a round including it. Where most of the time, things go well when raising a round, when there's misalignment between investors and founders. things can go terribly wrong.
