Following our discussions on the importance of vision, developing a pilot program, and the differences between profit and non-profit legal structures, through this week’s discussion, Tom and I will speak about the topic that keeps most founders up at night.
Raising money, and managing cash flow.
As with previous episodes, this discussion will be packed with our personal experience, be it learning to raise money, managing the stress of running out of it, or the processes that we have learned through the years to make both a bit easier.
