As a Startup, you know that fundraising is key to your success ðŸ”‘ But how do you go about it in the most effective way possible? In this post, weâ€™re going to share how we created a fundraising experience that helped us raise US$1.5M during our seed round at US$13.5M.
Instead of directly jumping into meetings and engaging with many investors in person (which can be a distraction from building your product), use a Quest to automate common first conversation topics:
âœ… Ask investors to provide their details and ticket size, so that your first conversation is more productive and valuable.
Give your investors a chance to go through all of the materials they need to learn all about your company. Provide links to your pitch video, slide deck, website, success stories, app demos and more.
Ask your investors to provide their details for follow up questions. Ask for their name, phone number, email address or anything else thatâ€™ll help with getting the ball rolling.
