Has any founder here ever sold a piece of their business just to take some chips off the table?
I'm curious to understand if there is anyone here who has bootstrapped a business and eventually sold shares (maybe a few, maybe a lot) to an outside investor just to take home some cash (i.e. the money does not go into the company but straight to the founder's wallet). If so, what's your story? Were you looking to de-risk, get some cash to start the next project or simply buy something nice? If not, would you consider doing so? Why / why not?
