Raise it the right way.



Only 8.3% of startups are successful in getting funding, says an annual report on Indian venture capital and private equity on startups released by IIT Madras. Mathematically it will be even less than one startup from every 10 startups. And for the next round, again the numbers are same. Rather negative i.e. 9 out of 10 funded startup fails to raise second round of funds and end up shutting down the venture.

So, what did they do right?

How did they attract investors to their business?

What did they do to persuade investors, both global and domestic, to sign them million-dollar cheques?

What were the factors that helped them clinch the deal?

Are these question keep you awake at night, dose you also get lost in fundraising language. Do valuation, Voting rights, Liq Pref, control, Term Sheet, Cap Table, pitching, types of funding, term sheets, and networking, to name a few words intimidate you.

And further creates obstacle in your fundraising efforts.

YOU'Re not the first to take the course

Attended this very informative workshop on Idea Validation from StartUp school which helped me get good idea about different aspects on how to evaluate your idea and work on it. Great content. Thanks to Sivesh for providing this platform to interact with experts and learn.

About the mentor

Sivesh Kumar

Founder – Startup Monk | Startup School | TEDx Speaker

Skill Prodigy ( edutech ) : Advisory Board (Mar 2019 – Oct 2019)

He started his journey as a founder way back in 2011 when he raised his first startup. Though it failed after a struggling one year. He started again, his next start failed as well. He got lucky the third time and not only he was able to successfully raised his startup but was able to take an exit with some good numbers. Since then he is working in Startup Ecosystem with First time founders in the capacity of Advisor.

He is an Angel Investor, and working on Startup Monk Network Fund which is the missing link between Startups and Investors. With Startup Monk Network Fund, he is trying the fill gap ( a huge one ) between the First Time Founder / Early Stage Startups and Investors.

He sits as Board in several Startups and also part of advisors for Atal Incubation Center ( SNU ).
