Knowing the difference can be very useful in understanding a particular investor’s motivation for investing or not investing in a startup.

Raising money for a startup has become a default option for most founders. Very few even consider bootstrapping anymore. That’s neither a good or bad thing and not the point of this post.

Unfortunately, not as many founders or investors discuss equity dilution as much as they should. Too many startups give up too much equity in their startup before their series A and I often see good companies struggling to raise a series A because of too much dilution early on.

What do you think is a reasonable amount of dilution going into a Series A and after closing a Series A?

A New Livestream Series – The Raise

As founders, a VC, angel and, now, through our advisory business at Founder Craft, we get asked for advice or “feedback” a lot. The questions range across a wide spectrum. However, they have one thing in common – they as for our opinions.

My Partner at Founder Craft, Gregarious and I have been doing some live streams over the last few months in addition to my InvestStream videos on YouTube and Instagram.

A little over a month ago, I was in Oman for an Investment Committee meeting and Greg messaged me. He said he was thinking about raising money for his new startup, Fanabulous! and what did I think about streaming the process.

I thought it was a great idea. Doing each episode, completely unscripted, focusing on him as a founder preparing to raise money for his new startup, should resonate with founders and even with some investors.

After some fine tuning, we launched ‘The Raise‘, an interactive, live-stream where Gregarious (the Founder) and I (the Investor) dive into the process of his fundraise.
