We've now seen over $30MM in successful fundraises via Journey since the start of Q2 2021. Naturally, I'm inclined to keep my eyes open for anything that will help founders get funded and here's what I'm reading and sharing this week:
1) Jason Yeh (@jayyeh) writes an awesome substack filled to the brim with tactics for founders across pitching, outreach, closing and everything in between. He even recently tweeted out a free playbook with over 14K investor names by category for free. Legend!
2) Nick Frost (@nickfrost) is a content beast at Docsend and rips a weekly trends email on pitch deck interest from investors which shows insights like how much time investors spend on reviewing decks, which slides are most important, and other nuggets to help founders optimize their pitch decks.
3) The team at Cabal (@bmurr) writes great stuff around managing and "activating" your shareholders, setting up an advisor program, and a lot more. We use Cabal to send out personalized investor updates which drive more engagement from our investors to help us out in areas they can add value.
If we can be helpful for your upcoming fundraise, don't hesitate to reach out.
