“Build relationships, add value
and move the needle”
Founder Market Fit
Successful startup founders deal with the growth and scaling
up journey with an intensity that inspires others involved in
their journey to want to be part of their story
I have observed two aspects to be true of the founding team:
1. Their startup constitutes a significant and critical body of work that is unique and
intrinsic to them personally.
1. Their startup is the coming together of the people, ideas and research that has allowed
them to be successful in previous roles, positions and projects.

3 Pillars of Fundraising

“Build relationships, add value
and move the needle”
Product
A strong value proposition is the only
thing that matters for an early stage
business.:
This should manifest in “I can
improve metric X by Y % for that
given problem”
Simply put, this is the measure of
the customer success
“Build relationships, add value
and move the needle”
Market
Be unequivocally perceived as a thought leader or
(the more modern) influencer in your space
Personal Branding is a continuous and consistent
presence reminding both knowledgeable and casual
audiences that you reign as leader in this domain.
Own the narrative! Make it personal and showcase
the highlights of your journey and how you live the
spirit of your vision.
“Build relationships, add value
and move the needle”
Network
Find the best person to give you an introduction to a
key person for your network; someone who is seen as
credible to the recipient.
This is because of social proof: you want to get an
intro from someone an investor respects and/or has
put her money where her mouth is.
