We gathered 150 TechAviv VCs, angels and founders for a candid town hall discussion about fundraising. No video cameras, just off-the-record real talk about the most important interaction between founders and investors. We sat town-hall style with everyone participating. Anonymous questions submitted ahead of time by TechAviv Founders Club members were used to guide the discussion. We covered everything from best practices in approaching and pitching investors, KPIs, valuations, ownership % and timing of "good deals", predatory terms and messed up cap tables, the best questions investors ask founders and vis-a-versa, and how to balance story telling with data-centric credibility.
