Meeting with investors and raising Capital is never easy. Every meeting is a mutual test where both sides study each other, to test if and in what form they want to expand their partnership. The founders face the challenge of trying to make themselves stand out from all the other companies the investor is meeting, while the investors are focused on finding the risks that this potential investment brings. There is not one correct way to handle this type of meeting – and maybe that is what makes it so challenging. With that, after several rounds of raising capital, there are a few points we managed to learn that are important to pay attention to while in the process.
In episode 12, Roy and Lior shared with us what they learned from raising $84 million in four rounds and five years.
In this recap episode, we bring the main insights from our 12th Episode – what questions should you ask the investor to create alignment , how to set up your valuation, and what should a good presentation look like?
