How I Raised My Seed: IRL + Livestream

How I Raised My Seed is a gathering centered around open discussion regarding best practices for raising a seed round. Every other month, we invite two or three founders who have successfully raised a seed in the past few months and foster an open dialogue around what worked and what didn’t.

*Link to the live-stream will be sent to you prior to the event.*
