Startup 101: Fundraising For Pre-Seed and Seed Stage Founders

The bootstrapping mentality is underrated, venture capital is not for all businesses, and revenue is the best form of financing. These are some of key points brought up by Kevin Brockland, Managing Partner at Indelible Ventures, as we shift gear away from tax and dive into the world of fundraising. We explore the fundraising options typically available Pre-Seed and Seed stage Founders, beginning with an overview of equity, debt, grants, and support from family and friends.

Among other things, Kevin will help us understand the pros and cons of bootstrapping versus external funding, the key considerations for equity and debt financing, and the specifics of venture capital—when to use it and when to avoid it. We will also cover common mistakes in early-stage fundraising, key terminology in funding agreements, and best practices for raising funds effectively.
