Unrelated to b-school - my new company VMTurbo launched a new website

Apologies for the non-b-school related content, but I am very excited to announce that my company VMTurbo just relaunched our website.

We had a stellar team supporting the project including WordPress coding guru extraordinaire Jason Siffring and Bill Kaligiros of on the layout and design side of the house.

Please take a look and let me know what you think of our virtual datacenter automation, virtual infrastructure health and performance management, and virtual infrastructure right-sizing solutions.

We also have a whitepaper available (registration required) that goes into detail about our unique supply-chain technology and why we think we’re poised to change the way virtual infrastructure is managed!

Evaluating startup offers and comp packages

The guys from Venture Hacks just posted regarding how individuals can evaluate job offers from startups. There are two parts (Part 1 and Part 2).

I thought this post was interesting because this past year I fielded similar questions from classmates who were evaluating opportunities with startups versus bigger, established companies. One thing I have seen fairly frequently in the past (and something I myself have done) is people who over-value their options. Most startup companies do not sell for Google or VMware-like prices, so you have to assume a moderate outcome (and therefore a moderate payout). Heck, some of them never sell and just go under. Just the nature of the game.

BTW, if you are really fired up about going to work at a startup after school, you might think about taking a VC class. It helps you understand the financing side of the startup world, and also comes in handy when you are thinking about how to value a startup's offer of employment.
