FREE GUIDE - WHY STARTUPS FAIL
READ ABOUT THE FIVE REASONS A STARTUP IS MOST LIKELY TO FAIL (AND HOW YOU CAN AVOID THEM)
The first time I tried to raise money for my startup, I felt like I’d walked into a different world. A place where they speak a different language, one which I didn’t understand.
Internal rates of return, valuations, pre-money, post money. It may as well have been a foreign language.
But I stuck with it and over the last twenty-five years, I’ve learned to speak the language. I raised money numerous times from investors – fourteen to be exact. Heck, I’ve almost gone native.
So relax, because I’m here to tell you that you have nothing to fear. I know how investors think, what flicks their switch and what grinds their gears.
The GetFunded program draws on all that experience to get you ready to go and pitch to the right investor, in the right way and ask for the right amount of money at the best valuation.
