About Course

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?

I like Sivesh Sir videos more informative and easy to understand than the Warton Business school professors. It is all you need to know about fundraising. And the best was the disclaimer that Sivesh sir gave in the first video. The dark, brutal truth of the startup world.

Sivesh is great... He is just so patient ( one should see how he takes up questions in weekly Q & A sessions and in WhatsApp groups ) and full of enthusiasm to help out people in this startup ecosystem. The interaction with fellow entrepreneurs, mentors, and Investors made this course interesting.
