Adam Barker CEO & Co-Founder at MagnaPass. We talk about raising funds for an early stage startup, real life examples of going through a pre-seed Angel syndicate, aiming for a raise of £300,000 and tips for pitching to groups of investors. Listen out for the entertaining story of sleeping in the car during a snow storm to pitch to investors in the morning.

Here are the 3 things I learned from Adam Barker...

  • work your own network in the early days. You may be surprised who invests in your startup

  • know your own business inside out when pitching to investors

  • explain the problem, your projections and vision during short pitches, but leave a lot of the 'meat and potatoes' for the inevitable questions at the end
