Show Notes

Welcome back to How To Build An App!

This week, we’re talking about funding and investors.

When it comes to startups, funding is a big topic of conversation.

Are you going to bootstrap? Will you seek out investors? What kind of investors? When should you even start trying to get outside funding?

Then you’ve got to consider how to pitch your product to investors and secure funding. What are they looking for? What do they view as red flags?

That’s why we’ve brought Harlan Milkove onto the show this week.

Harlan is a repeat start-up founder and an early-stage venture capital strategist.

He’s currently the Managing Partner of Foundational, a management consulting company that helps startups secure early-stage venture capital funding.

All of this to say, he knows the ins and outs of the industry, and he’s going to answer all of the questions we just asked and more.

In this episode, Harlan shares how you can prepare to pitch your idea, and the steps you need to take for investors to take you seriously.
