For most first-time founders, fundraising is a daunting prospect -- a shadowy, insiders-only process that has been made even more complex by recent shake-ups in the venture capital industry. Most founders are forced to learn as they go, dragging out the already lengthy process and causing some to make decisions without realizing their impact on their company's future. In this session, FundersClub CEO and co-founder, Alex Mittal, will outline the fundraising process for first-time founders, focusing on whether fundraising makes sense, best practices for securing their company's first round of capital, the role investors will play in their company's future, and things to consider before agreeing to investment terms. As a serial entrepreneur and founder of the world's first online VC platform, Alex is uniquely familiar with both sides of the equation and able to help other founders understand how to balance their company's needs with the market's demands.
