Blog Network b5media seeks VC Funding

Blog Network Watch highlights a post by b5media President Jeremy Wright where he reveals that b5media will soon seek VC funding.

Syntagma Media muses on what it all means for b5media:

Of course, if that was the exit strategy from the beginning it doesn’€™t matter except that maybe 40 percent of the sale value is lost to the VCs, who will expect a 40 percent annual return on capital invested. With both income and final payout so massively cut, and with so many people to be paid, one senses that a sheet of rice paper has just moved in between b5’€™s potential and the exuberant expectations of its founders.

It will be interesting to see if B5 succeeds in its endeavor to raise funding. Rival Creative Weblogging was able to raise funding so we suspect B5 has a shot. The blog network has managed to launch a large number of blogs that cover tech, entertainment, sports and more. None of the blogs is a break-out leader like Weblogs Inc. had with Engadget.

Funding brings with it both flexibility, short-term stability, and the prospect for long-term success. It provides the short-term stability needed to build up infrastructure, bring on full-time staff, and deal with the varied expenses involved in growing a business. We wish b5media luck in their endeavor!
