Building a Fundable Startup: What Founders Need to Know
There are seven evergreen rules of building fundamentally fundable startups that all early-stage founders need to know. These rules allow ventures to raise at higher valuations, raise faster and raise from the top investors. In good capital markets, such as the last two years, they were 'nice to have' but in a market climate like today, these rules are a 'must have' for ventures to successfully raise seed capital.
