We deal with thousands of companies in the process of fundraising. Last year, I spoke to over 1,000 founders, and I’ve set a personal goal to beat that this year.
These companies mostly come to me for office hours, and most of the time, their questions revolve around fundraising. One thousand people are enough to detect some patterns: the mistakes these companies are making when approaching their fundraising.
5 Startup mistakes when finding investors:
– Fundraising to hire the essential team – 0:37
– Requesting an NDA – 2:06
– Approaching the wrong kind of investors – 2:48
– Trying to raise too much money – 4:10
– Showing that you’re desperate – 4:36
