Episode Highlights

My only lesson out of fun raising is like, be fundraising when you company is in a great situation and you don't need to fund raise, if you need to fund raise, it will be unpleasant, If I ever start an other company from scratch, I'll make sure to get some traction get a product that really as product market fit, have a small core team that isn't burning all of that money and then go raise money to accelerate not just to stay alive
