Let me demystify this complex, confusing strategy they call:
Yeah, you’ve heard the words thrown around before.
“We’re raising our series B”, and “I’m looking for a pre-seed angel investor” or “We’re gearing up for an IPO”…
They may as well be talking another language, right?
Except that somewhere between those phrases, letters and acronyms is a reliable, rock-solid funding strategy that is PROVEN to work again and again.
It has turned founders into billionaires…
Put CEOs on the cover of Entrepreneur magazine…
And transformed back-of-napkin ideas into living breathing companies.
So let’s cut to the bone and spell out the sequential funding rounds in PLAIN ENGLISH.
- What each funding round means
- How much money you can expect from each round
- Who provides that money
- How to tell which round a business needs next
- Who leads a company through each round
- Why the rounds even exist in the first place!

If there’s a part of you that feels intimidated because you don’t yet understand all the “CEO talk” (yes, I’m using air quotes here), then don’t worry.
I didn’t either.
Now I could write a dictionary on “corporate jargon” 3-houses-thick and I would never even recommend anyone reads it.
But in those early days, I was beating down doors to find someone – anyone – that could spell out the basics when I was trying to start my first business.
By the end of this video, startup funding rounds will finally make sense.

I’d love to hear from you.
