How To Run a Fundraising Process

  1. Get Organized
  • Fundraising is a market of one. You need one yes to get a lead and quickly close the round. You do not and will not get everyone to say yes. Set your expectations accordingly
  • Speed is your friend. I like to view my goal is to get as many no’s as quickly as possible
  • Be okay with the business slowing down. You can’t do everything and fundraising needs to be your 100% focus.
