Getting funding from investors is always a challenge for startups. Avoiding common pitfalls when raising money can make the difference between your startup’s success or failure and the amount of dilution that founders will suffer that can mean the difference between a great or a dismal exit.

• the danger of taking too much or too little from investors;

• identifying the valuation inflection points of your company;

• the differences between seed, angel and venture capital funding;

• alternative funding sources;

• appropriate funding instruments for each round of funding, including convertible notes, SAFE’s, common stock and preferred stock ;

• the pros and cons of selling equity, convertible instruments, and venture debt;

• selecting and gaining access to the right investor; and

• what to do to increase the pre-money valuation of your company.
