12: How To De-risk Raising Capital From Investors

Listen on:

When Roy Mann and Lior Krengel meet with entrepreneurs, as a part of our Startup for Startup initiative, one topic is always brought up – raising capital.  

Whom do you contact? When do you raise money? How should you go about the process? What’s the pitch deck supposed to look like? How do you best understand investor feedback? Who should come to the meeting? What should you ask investors? And many, many, many more!

There is no end to the questions because there is no eternal or ultimate truth for raising capital. Nor is it a precise science. Every day a new batch of entrepreneurs raises money with a new approach. Each one filled with ambition and creativity but without experience.

Roy Mann, CEO and Co-Founder at monday.com shared with us what he learned from raising $84 million in four rounds and five years. We recorded this so that when entrepreneurs do meet us, they’ll have another option to ‘prepare’ for our meeting. This makes it so we can focus on their specific challenges once we meet.

We want to make sure you get the most of our discussion so we’ve included a presentation on the subject.
