How do you navigate venture capital fundraising as a first-time founder? Having been part of over 500+ companies’ fundraising journeys I’m deeply aware of how challenging and frustrating it can be.

Today, I’m excited to announce the launch of a freshly updated edition of the Fundraising Field Guide, the essential companion to any first-time founder navigating what we know can be an opaque and daunting world.

The book charts the massive changes in the fundraising landscape post-pandemic along practical guidance on how to weatherproof your startup for any financial climate and how to determine the right plan — and partner — for your fundraising journey.

I hope you’ll find the book to be a good starting point to begin and navigate your fundraising journey.
