“from the moment I read about their seed funding, I worried that they wouldn’t be able to build a long-term sustainable business if they were hooked on professional funding and busy chasing growth.”

I have to wonder how long until the same occurs in the music/audio tech world? When I read of some super niche audio company receiving large sums of VC, I can imagine them celebrating and hiring staff & renting more space… And scheming & planning where the future will lead them. But there must be a deep existential dread also associated with it, since the more VC they receive the greater the pressure to achieve exponential growth, and ROI for their investors. Sustainability is no longer viable.
