Many founders feel they face a catch-22: they can't get traction without funding, and they can't get funding without traction. While often investors are looking for scrappier founders that don't let limited resources stop them, it's also true that there are some ideas that are simply too capital intensive to bring to market without funding. And as tech investment continues to boom, there are also a growing number of investors looking for the right opportunity to make earlier bets on promising startups, even if they're pre-revenue / pre-product.
But every professional investor does have some set of proof points that they're looking for -- in the market opportunity, in the product vision, in the founders themselves -- and understanding what those are is essential for founders looking to raise capital. We've put together a panel of Boston seed-stage investors who are willing to invest pre-traction if the opportunity is right, to learn from them what defines those opportunities.
If you're an idea or seed-stage founder thinking about fundraising, don't miss this opportunity to hear first-hand what investors are looking for.
This event is part of the Founders & C-Suite Track at Startup Boston Week 2019. And is perfect for companies in the Early Stage.
