“Demystifying Funding for Startups” was an excellent session that sketched the basics of early stage funding. Picking the right “color of money” is important - an investor’s attitude, risk appetite, knowledge,
and networks, amongst others, add value to the Startup. Likewise, picking the “wrong” investor could
deplete valuable focus, time, energy and resources – a misstep Startups should avoid. To keep this session
aimed towards early-stage Startups, the focus rested on FFF (Friends, Family & Fools), Angel and VC fund
classes, and how they differ in terms of goals, demands and time-frames.
