Hacking Your Funding Round
How to “run a process” when raising capital.
Fundraising is a skill that founders are not born with, but it can be learned. This talk contains basically everything I’ve picked up from 10+ years of raising capital for startups. I give this talk about 1–2x per month to new Foundersuite users, and I’ve given it at NASDAQ, 500 Startups, GAN.co, WeWork, General Assembly, and to 40+ top accelerators around the world.
In this talk, I cover:
- How to build and qualify a target list of investor leads
- How to secure the strongest possible “warm intro” (and what to do if you don’t have a mutual connection)
- How to run a streamlined process and drive momentum around your deal
- How to close your round faster and with greater negotiating leverage.
I hope you enjoy it — please let me know if you have any comments or additional “hacks” in the comment section :)
