How to Plan for Future Fundraisings
Limited Capacity filling up

With the blurring of lines in early stage financings and ever changing round sizes, metrics and expectations, join us for an interactive workshop on How to Plan for Future Fundraisings. While it is easier than ever to start a business, the costs of scaling are ever increasing and need a thought-out plan for how to raise capital to support the growth over multiple rounds.

This workshop will discuss dynamics, trends and metrics for raising early stage capital, what investors look for and how to best position your startup for potential fundraises.

This event is open to post-product companies that are looking to raise VC capital in the next 12 months.

Discussion Topics
  • Best practices on building relationships and communications with investors before and during the fundraising process
  • What VCs look for at different stages of the early days of the company
  • How much capital to raise at each stage?
  • How to plan and budget for the proper amount of operational runway
  • Key metrics and milestones for each round
  • Dangers of raising too much money too soon and how that affects future valuations and exit expectations
  • Best practices on investor updates
  • Common pitfalls
