Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
If you successfully raised your seed round you will find that Series A funding to be a new challenge.
Series A funding is different from seed funding in several ways.
In seed funding, the entrepreneur must convince the investor that they can sell the product.
In Series A funding, the entrepreneur must convince the investor they can grow the overall business.
In seed funding, product-market fit and traction are the key drivers pointing to success.
In Series A funding, repeatable processes and systems installed are the key drivers.
In seed funding, investments come in bits and pieces and anything helps.
In Series A funding, larger portions must be raised to carry out the plan.
In seed funding, family, friends, angels, and others, are the primary source of funding.
In Series A, venture capital and institutions take the lead in funding.
Make sure you don’t use your seed deck for a Series A funding as you will find the presentation will fall flat.
