A Dialog with Daniel Peris, author of "The Ownership Dividend: The Coming Paradigm Shift in the U.S. Stock Market"
Great piece and enjoyed the new interview format.
It strikes me that there has been a recent growth in discussions about tech companies that are able to return cash to shareholders in non-exit-dependent event ways. Tiny Company, OF, Constellation Software...lots of folks talking about more mid-market plays with a desire to see cash returns earlier and in the pockets of shareholders, versus being patient and relying on markups.
Of course, the financial structure around traditional VC remains the same, but it seems like new vehicles are being ‘figured out’ to get closer to a more dividend style approach to indie companies/startups, which I think is pretty exciting.
