"Fundraising Insights Straight from the Trenches" by Tony Aguilar
Successful fundraising is hard.
Every entrepreneur believes their idea deserves funding yet the process often feels like a big catch-22... no investor wants to jump in unless others have already given funds or the numbers are a no-brainer.
Investors don't give out money easily so what does it take?
• Building a compelling pitch and the path to honing it
• Getting investors to help you, even if you get a "no"
• Framing talks with angel investors versus institutional VCs
• Generating investor momentum to close your round
This is going to be less presentation and more of an honest talk so come on out with you questions!
