As much as a VC meeting is a chance to convince the VC to invest in your company, it can also provide an opportunity to get some perspectives on your business. VCs work with lots of companies and meet even more, and although we ask stupid questions at times, we hopefully also ask questions that can provide food for thought and maybe even push you to better define what your business is about or what actually is important.

On this note, I found a pretty amusing post on TechCrunch by Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman who lists the best questions they received when fundraising. Not all may be applicable to your business but I think most of them are pretty fundamental for any startup.
