Hello @mark, so I work with several startups, some of which are currently going through the fundraising process and default positioning of most entrepreneurs is “This investor is out to cheat me, steal my equity and completely take over my company.” From your experience, is this a positioning to maintain or would you say investors are likely partners and enablers in your business growth despite their profit-making goal?
Huge congratulations on this milestone and a big thank you for agreeing to do this AMA. It’s an emerging ecosystem and there’s a dearth of information around. The few founders who have achieved this milestone are hesitant to speak of their experience thereby depriving the ecosystem of much needed education.
Best wishes as you continue on this adventure!
