Fundraising is a sexy topic.
And understandably so.
Because when executed properly, raising capital affords you the opportunity to scale up your startup with speed.
To build a global sensation, reach billions with your product, and create mass-scale impact.
The very moment you accept VC funding, you’re instantly fueled by increased access to:
- Top-level talent

- More press than you can handle
- And the cash to carry out your most ambitious plans
But there is a dark side.

Now this isn’t to say that raising VC is a good thing or a bad thing.

So go ahead and watch the video now.
