What Are The Pros And Cons Of Organic Growth vs VC Driven Growth?

The answer depends on the VC you have chosen to engage with. The hypothesis of this question is weak, for all growth is organic. You can’t buy growth (you can finagle valuations).

What happens when you raise money from VC is the sale of shares of the company, and you incur a significant liability both in terms of ownership and control in return, and dare I say a challenging outcome, with the majority of VCs huddling behind the uniformity of collusion and round/risk fragmentation based on portfolio plays.

So, the answer to this question depends on what VC you have chosen to engage with. For not all VC are created equal. Only a handful in Silicon Valley has the merit to spot outliers and understand what it takes the pursue the rocky trajectory of upside. The wrong VC will force you to protect downside at every turn and thus yields an entirely different answer to the question posed here.
