How VCs Can and Should Invest in Later Rounds
David Teten - VC

You have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them. So when a company in which I’m an investor is raising a later round, should we (the VC investor) keep our pro rata or get diluted? . My view is that one should always make this decision on an individual company basis. Almost all VC investments include pro rata rights. These give the right to invest more money in a company sufficient to keep the same percentage ownership, for so long as we have both the cash and the appetite.
