In the course of my nearly decade-long experience of building a company, I’ve had hundreds of investor meetings. Fundraising has never really been my strong suit. In fact, I had over a hundred meetings to raise our Series seed, and it took me a record 14 months to close our Series A, which is a slightly discomforting fact to admit in writing, given that I’m often told that fundraising is a core part of the CEO’s job.
When it came time to raise our Series B in January of this year, I braced myself for the onslaught of rejection, yet within five days of kicking off our raise, we received our first term sheet.
