Hiten has spent 1000 minutes interviewing founders about fundraising and today he tells us what he learned. Hiten and his team asked founders questions over the course of a 20 minute phone call. They asked about the tools and resources they used to get their current status in the fundraising. The answers the team and Hiten collected were surprisingly universal.

The points we discussed today:

  • Hiten’s experience with fundraising
  • Why he did the research
  • The process used during the interviews
  • The findings
  • Why startups need to avoid “bucketing” with investors
  • No current information is available for fundraising
  • How advice can hinder fundraising

Hiten plans on releasing a survey on this topic. If you want to participate in the survey visit https://bitly.com/fundingearlyaccess.
