about this episode

VC Jalak Jobanputra, Founder of FuturePerfect Ventures, brings her 20yrs investment experience to the LAUNCH Incubator 2 class and delivers a comprehensive breakdown of funding options for startups in 2015. The landscape is slippery and ever-shifting, but Jalak’s pointed analysis of players in this “investor soup” — including the pros/cons/consequences of aligning with each and essential questions founders need to ask of investors and of themselves — gives us sure, solid footing. (Know your goals. Do not simply follow what everyone else is doing.) A must-listen. And you can see Jalak’s slides here!

    Great discussion and insight from Jalak, I especially found it interesting to hear her own thoughts on being a micro VC and the extra level of care she takes to ensure she doesn’t get diluted to an insignificant level when a VC comes over the top in a later round. As an Entrepreneur there seems to be 101 things to consider when raising funds, as decisions you make today can effect you a year or two down the path. Still I find a challenge like that invigorating and actually spent all of last night reading up on the subject.
