Success in fundraising isn’t as much about the “yes” or the “no” as it is about the right people coming together. The founder/funder relationship is a “til death or an exit do you part.” How do you find the right person and what does it take to make that relationship work?
When should you walk away and leave the money on the table?
What makes an investor say yes? Or no?
Why due diligence works both ways.
If you could ask an investor anything, what would it be?
What numbers do you need to have in your pitch?
Meet the investors and participate in an evening of candid conversation designed to improve investor/founder relationships. Local investors who have invested in Chicago startups will openly discuss their decision-making processes, the current founder/funder environment and what we can all do to create a better environment for all.
