Founders often raise money from friends and family and other angels. The treatment of the friends, family and angels (FFA) as the startup matures and raises larger rounds of financing over time is interesting. And sometimes founders want to protect the financial interests of FFAs. In short, they own a smaller piece of a larger valuation pie. causing valuation bumps. And as stated above, I think they should use these rights.
