Where Silicon Valley meets the Southwest… Startup Investing 2022 and beyond.

We took note of the startup funding-related questions we’ve been asked over a ONE WEEK PERIOD. A lot of questions for sure – but a seemingly endless supply of conflicting answers about funding make it hard to navigate the investing ecosystem as a founder.  

If you have any of the following questions about startup funding – join us on October 27th at 6pm PST for answers…

Can my idea become a business?
What is bootstrapping?
Do I need funding?
How much investment do I need?
Do investors only invest in startups incorporated in Delaware and why?
Will you introduce me to investors?
What’s the difference between friends & family, angel, and venture capital investment?
When & how do I set a valuation of my company?
Do I need a pitch deck?
How long should my pitch be?
Do I use the same pitch deck for everyone?
Do I have potential investors sign an NDA before showing them my pitch deck?
What’s the difference between a convertible note, a SAFE, and restricted stock?
How much equity do I give to investors and advisors?
What makes my company stick out in the crowd?
Do social impact and social equity matter to investors?
How much do my team and advisors matter to investors?
Are there investors that focus on funding BIPOC, women, and veteran founders and startups? Do incubators and accelerators help get funding?
