Founder Collective Managing Partner Micah Rosenbloom advises founders to recognize the realities of raising institutional capital, how to contextualize an investor's motivations, as well as determine his or her future involvement.
It’s most telling to speak
to founders whose companies have faced challenges, pivoted, or folded. These conversations will enable you to unveil a VC’s long-term commitment, availability, and feedback style.
“There’s a temptation to raise
money, especially now when there’s a lot of capital in the market, as almost a validation of your business. Yet, as a founder, your options get fewer.”
Whether it’s a decision to
pivot, sell the company, or even move your business, your options become complicated when you raise outside funding. You have to justify your decisions, manage expectations, and maintain your credibility.
