How to Raise Venture Capital for Your Startup, From Pre-Seed to Series A
Every stage of funding for a startup requires a different set of metrics and milestones

Every year I teach classrooms full of students about business. These students end up leaving my classes understanding the basics of how to search for product/market fit — and thinking their next goal is to “get funded.”

That’s a mistake many new founders make because there are only two reasons to seek out funding:

  1. You have a killer idea that is only partially validated, that you think can get to $50 million+ of revenue in five years with 80%+ gross margins (if margins are lower, you need a lot more revenue), and you need money to get to product/market fit, or
  2. You already have product/market fit with real customers and real revenue and need money to grow and expand.


The only startup course inspired from the experience of helping more than 3500 entrepreneurs of which 300 have grown their startups to Seed and Series A stage and raised over $300 Million in funding.
