All About Raising Funds

When you're building a startup, when & how should you go about funding your company?

It can be tempting for a startup founder to look for investors early on, especially in today’s market. But what are the risks of giving up equities and bringing investors onborad? 

It’s easy to buy into the hype that securing funding should be a startup’s top priority. Many founders today look to raise capital right off the bat—as soon as they have a concept, they start looking for investors. However, taking on capital is a big commitment. Once you bring on investors, it is no longer completely your company. Sometimes, raising money causes more problems than solutions. 

The theme for the May edition of the 6-month long series is Raising Funds. This edition will see founders, and experts come in and talk about their experience of securing funds. The topics that will be covered are: is the startup investment ready, the sources from where investment can be procured, legal aspects to be considered while raising funds, the challenges startups face post raising funds, bootstapping, etc.
