Fundraising Radio | Startups | Venture Capital | Angel Investing

By Konstantin Dubovitskiy

Fundraising Radio is a podcast about fundraising for early stage startups. We focus on helping founders understand how they can raise the first institutional round outside of friends and family. How to appeal to investors and how to make sure that they see in your company what you see there. We interview experienced founders who sold their companies in the past and raised hundreds of millions, we talk with active angels, managers of rolling funds, corporate venture capitalists etc. If there is anything you want to learn about pre-seed and seed stage fundraising, it’s on Fundraising Radio.
