The Art of Raising Venture Capital

July 2nd, 2009 :: Steven Fisher

Most of you who know me know I am big fan of Guy Kawasaki and not just because he was an Apple evangelist but because he understands startups. He invests in them, launches his own and writes no BS books on the topics that are must reads for anyone out there looking to start a business, especially if you are looking to raise capital for your business. The SBSI notes that the most challenging problem for small businesses is raising capital.

I wrote extensively about raising venture capital when I used to run VentureFiles and write about my experiences as an entrepreneur in the trenches raising money from angels and then venture capitalists. It is hard to impart this kind of real world experience into lessons. But Guy Kawasaki has done just that.

These videos are from his post “The Art of Raising Venture Capital” and attempt to explain the art of raising venture capital. It is broken into three parts.

  2. The proper way to raise capital is to retain an attorney, CPA or other financial professional who has spent years developong relationships with accredited investors. Retaining the “gatekeepers” will increase your chances of success.
