#5 | How to raise investment

Raising investment is one of the most exciting parts of building a startup - but it’s also unlike anything most people have experienced before. For a first time founder, it can feel like one of the steepest learning curves.

How do I get started? Who should I raise from? How important is valuation? How long should I wait from round to round? Should I raise investment at all?

Having helped hundreds of companies to raise capital, in this episode, Matt and Alice share their insider knowledge.

They offer their advice to guests Daniel and Moritz, who are preparing to fundraise for their web3-focused company Moonpass.AI, and answer a letter from Tasha, who is deciding whether to bootstrap or fundraise.

For more advice on how to raise investment, Matt and Alice’s book ‘How to be a Founder’ is out now. Visit howtobeafounder.com for more information and to order your copy.
