For many early-stage founders, fundraising is a hard and difficult process because they may not know or understand how to connect with investors, what makes them interested in certain companies, or what signs investors look for in companies to see growth.


You can make fundraising much faster when you learn what exactly investors are looking for, and strategically build and grow your startup to show those signs, making your conversations with VCs much better.


To dive into this, we’re excited to chat with Harlan Milkove, Founder of Foundational, where he helps startups with early-stage fundraising challenges. He also co-founded Reonomy, a commercial real estate platform that has raised $125M+ in venture capital.

Join us as we discuss:
- What investors look for
- How to know that your startup is readdy for fundraising
- Creating signals that are appealing to investors
- What is traction science and how it can help you fundraise
- Tactics on closing faster

About the speaker:

Harlan Milkove, a repeat VC-backed startup founder, started Foundational in 2016 to solve the early-stage fundraising challenges he and his teams had faced due to the asymmetry of information between founders and their prospective investors.

Prior to Foundational, Harlan co-founded Reonomy, a commercial real estate analytics platform which has raised $125M+ in VC. He has also been a founding member of companies in the blockchain, IoT, and on-demand labor verticals.

Harlan also mentors several accelerators, including Techstars and Quake Capital, and leads workshops where he teaches others how to implement Traction Science.

In the new world of virtual everything — communication, connection, entertainment — we find ourselves searching for the best ways to meet our social needs, from working with colleagues to just enjoying a beer with friends.

Solving the problem of isolation has opened up new opportunities for tech brands and founders, and we’ve seen a series of innovations in the past three months which change the way we go about our lives. These new platforms help us remotely continue our routines, like caring for the elderly or attending a comedy show. But they also usher in a new set of concerns: how do we stay in touch with our mental health and decompress with all this screen time?

RENDER: Remote World examined these emerging technologies, the innovations we see on the horizon, and suggested how we can cope and thrive within our newly digitized lives.

Reclaiming
Trust

Are we human? or Are we data?

In today’s information ecosystem, we are overwhelmed with the growing inability to know who to trust, what to believe, how to verify credible sources, and how to engage in reasonable discourse. We are fragmenting our experiences and relationships as data-driven businesses are tracking us, segmenting us, and curating our online experiences to perfect an ad-driven personalization process. These  technologies which strive to connect us have also been weaponized to target, fragment, tribalize and disenfranchise citizens. And now we struggle as a society to come to a shared consensus on what is true and what is not.

Join us for our latest (virtual) RENDER sessions in which we’ll discuss how we got into this technological and social quagmire, what the big tech platforms, the government, and start-ups can do about it, see demos from some start-ups tackling the disinformation problem, and discuss how to invest in this category.

For many early-stage founders, fundraising is a hard and difficult process because they may not know or understand how to connect with investors, what makes them interested in certain companies, or what signs investors look for in companies to see growth.


You can make fundraising much faster when you learn what exactly investors are looking for, and strategically build and grow your startup to show those signs, making your conversations with VCs much better.


To dive into this, we’re excited to chat with Harlan Milkove, Founder of Foundational, where he helps startups with early-stage fundraising challenges. He also co-founded Reonomy, a commercial real estate platform that has raised $125M+ in venture capital.

Join us as we discuss:
- What investors look for
- How to know that your startup is readdy for fundraising
- Creating signals that are appealing to investors
- What is traction science and how it can help you fundraise
- Tactics on closing faster

About the speaker:

Harlan Milkove, a repeat VC-backed startup founder, started Foundational in 2016 to solve the early-stage fundraising challenges he and his teams had faced due to the asymmetry of information between founders and their prospective investors.

Prior to Foundational, Harlan co-founded Reonomy, a commercial real estate analytics platform which has raised $125M+ in VC. He has also been a founding member of companies in the blockchain, IoT, and on-demand labor verticals.

Harlan also mentors several accelerators, including Techstars and Quake Capital, and leads workshops where he teaches others how to implement Traction Science.
