TRACTION WEBINAR | Fundraising in Uncertain Times
You’ve got a great product vision and a major market opportunity, but you’ve got to scale the engineering team that is going to make it happen.
The problem is, the times are uncertain and a recession is looming. And all the best advice out there says to conserve cash and pause hiring.
But you also know this is the right time to innovate on your product to keep your customers happy… Coz Fundraising is tough enough, let alone trying to raise money during uncertain times and a looming recession.
Most Founders never get an inside look at what it takes to raise VC from the world’s top firms. On the surface, it appears traction, product-market fit, and a huge TAM are enough. But underneath every successful fundraise is a complex process that is rarely seen by anyone except the Founders.
In this webinar, two serial entrepreneurs, Hanif Joshaghani (Cofounder/ CEO, Symend) and Kumar Erramilli (Cofounder/ CTO, ACTO) will provide fundraising advice and best practices from their experience closing over $70 Million during this pandemic. They’ll be joined by Silicon Valley VC, Vignesh Ravikumar (Principal, Sierra Ventures) for a Funder’s perspective. The session will be moderated by Russ Armstrong (Director of BD, Boast.AI).
Topics covered include:
– What VCs mean when they say they are “open for business”
– Internal behind-the-scenes dynamics that are affecting funds’ decision-making
– Fundraising strategy: how founders should adapt their fundraising plans and story for the near- and mid-future
– Valuation multiples: potential impacts on valuations and pricing in new financings
– Non-dilutive capital
