"then as that deadline looms the likelihood of early investors being forced to hold the lube and bend over when it comes to discussing price is going to increase." - subtle :)
The problem is that when the opportunity to make money is there, outside VC firms will come. Especially when you have companies like like Oculus VR ($2 billion) and Whats App ($19 billion) for example making great exits. It is only natural that outside investors will want a slice of the action, and even though there are many other start-up communities in the world, the valley is the poster child for start-up world.
I am working on my own start-up project, but I'm not in the valley. Nope I'm in Hampshire, UK. More silicon fields than silicon valley.

As someone who has lost his mother to diabetes (among other conditions) in the last 5 years, I hope that there claims in regards to this product are true, although I am very doubtful.
If however it is a straight up scam, I hope that they are hounded by a herd of diuretic camels.
Great post, lengthy, but worth the read.
