3x funded startup CEO. Guided countless entrepreneurs with no fundraising experience to successfully close their first rounds. Author, The First Million (Spring 2016).
When I started raising money I had no experience at all. No MBA, no network of tech investors or folks with big exits, no relevant contacts. I hired fundraising consultants from Harvard, authors of some of the best fundraising books around, and many people who'd raised $100M+. I learned that once you've raised $10M+ you don't remember how to raise the first $100,000. After dozens and dozens of requests for help from first time entrepreneurs I decided to offer the service I wish I had found when I first started out. That lead me to write The First Million and design a course around the topic. Both will be release Spring 2016.
