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
