Frank Demmler archives at Texas Startup Blog

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 17 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

A friend of mine was asking about how to raise money for a startup. I pointed him to some stuff at a number of VC blogs like Brad Feld’s Term Sheet series. I also wanted him to read all of Frank Demmler’s essays on Alexander Muse’s Texas Startup blog. But the excellent essays aren’t tagged consistently and the archive pages don’t show the post’s author. Knowing that the blog is powered by Wordpress, I hacked the URL for the Frank Demmler archives.
