While a great idea and a talented team are necessary to a successful startup, they are not sufficient. Learn what VCs look for in a startup and in a pitch, and learn what you need to do to create and give an investor pitch that will get your startup noticed and funded.

Fundraising is a difficult process at the best of times, and now is not the best of times. Whether you are in the midst of raising funds or you have 18 months of cash in the bank, it is more important than ever that you invest in building and maintaining relationships with current and potential funders.
Data suggests that startups that regularly communicate with their current investors are twice as likely to raise follow-on funding. Keeping prospective funders in-the-loop can have similar payoffs.

Finding Aligned Capital
The good news is that there are many different sources of funding for a startup today, and many paths to that funding.
However, your decisions about when to raise funds, how much to raise – and at what valuation, and your choice of funding partner(s) can have a drastic impact on the success or failure of your startup as well as your personal career and financial bottom line.

Working for a startup can be exciting, enlightening and enriching – with the right company, the right role and the right compensation package. But once you have an offer to work at a startup, how can you determine if the job offer is a good one?
