Too many founders rush into fundraising without a clear strategy. Diving right into a pitch deck is alluring and fun, but failing to understand the right funding approach, sources, vehicles and targets leads to higher stress, increased risk, and -- most importantly -- greatly reduced founder payouts.

Learn the right way to fund your startup by first determining:

1) How much to raise

2) When to raise

3) From where to raise

4) What type of funds to raise

5) From whom to raise

Learn how to maximize valuations, improve fundraising terms, and minimize founder dilution by strategically identifying and leveraging your startup’s inflection points.

Come with your questions, concerns and scenarios.
