  • Fast & Furious wins the race – aligning to momentum keeps an investor alive & kicking.
  • Raising funds is expensive both in time & money – both resource are scarce with entrepreneur and abundant with investors.
  • Frequency of investors communication – engagement is more important in early stage than the duration of communication.
  • Startups which offer prospects quick trial, pilot & testing – will seize the opportunity to grab investors attention.
  • Make sure to demonstrate right sense of urgency and selectivity.

It was a deep dive session and lasted 90 minutes followed by Q&A, and addressed issues that are super-critical and must-know for startup founders looking to raise funds and scale their startup.
