CONNECTS: Early Stage Fundraising from Silicon Valley Investors



Event Details

Wednesday, October 6, 2021

12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Presenter: Kelly Coyne, Chalet

There has been a fundamental shift in recent years regarding:

  • Fundraising Terminology - Does Series A mean the same thing in Silicon Valley as Denver? (Spoiler: it doesn't.)
  • Fundraising Milestones - What matters more for an early stage startup patents or traction?
  • Fundraising Expectations - How many customers do you need to raise a Seed round? (not zero) Does your product need to be fully functional before Pre-Seed? (in most cases, absolutely) What is the lowest ARR requirement for most institutional Series A raises? (Much higher than you would think!)

Join me for this session on fundraising from venture capitalists and make sure that you are set up for success before your first pitch email.
