The product founders wish they had for their first fundraise.
After working with founders who’ve raised a combined $545MM I understand the struggles you’re facing.
The venture capital and startup game is a mess of metrics, power plays from investors, poor pitch deck advice, and more things behind the scenes that founders never get to know until it’s too late.
In short, it’s insane.
I worked on my first fundraise in Q2 2021. The founder came to me after I had worked with them at On Deck and they asked me if I offered fundraising as a service. I didn’t at the time but figured I could at least help them with their storytelling and delivery.
Over the next 60 days, the founder went on to raise a seed round of $2m. A game changer for their startup.
After the cash was wired to her bank, she sent me a text: “This wouldn’t have happened without you.”
I was onto something here.
Over the next two years, I worked with thousands of founders to teach them how to raise capital.
I also worked hand in hand with 73 founders who have now raised $545,000,000.
While helping founders raise, I was also sharing what I saw working with my clients on LinkedIn and YouTube. As those channels started to grow, so did the demand for my services.
I had to raise my prices.
Currently, my rate is in the mid-5 figures a month for my time. This is a ridiculous number for most first-time founders, simply because they haven’t raised any capital yet.
After speaking with current and former clients, receiving their feedback on what was valuable and what they wished they’d had when they raised their first round of capital, I made Crush Your Capital Raise.
Alongside all of this, you’ll have the opportunity to send us your pitch for feedback and revisions from the Founder Fundraising team.
Every founder who participates will have this opportunity.
We want to make sure every founder who goes through Crush Your Capital Raise will do just that.
Because when you finish, we want you sending us that email with the link to your TechCrunch announcement.
