I love this. At the recommendation of a friend with significant fundraising experience, I ended up putting a slide in our fundraising deck that outlines for past rounds and the upcoming round:
- Round + amount raised
- What we did / plan to execute on
- What areas we de-risked / plan to de-risk
Being explicit about that framework has been incredibly beneficial in terms of explaining what we’ve learned/accomplished, and how we are aggressively going after the biggest known risk we currently face with funds from our next round.
