CEO at Vestorly, an AI software company. Raised $12 million in VC. Built and managed teams in engineering, sales, and marketing for a SaaS company.
There are hundreds of blog posts about how to make a slide deck and raise a round. Most of them are by VC's, which is like a fishing blog written by a tuna. The truth of how you get VC is hard to swallow. But once you understand a few basic principles that no one wants to admit, it becomes simple. From there it's a matter of setting up your tactical process to communicate the deal, create the market, and close with speed. I've raised 12 million in VC, I'm fresh off the beat and willing to share my thoughts on this process.
