The core of the GEM is serving founders. Beyond being in the know about industry developments, a big part of founders’ lives is fundraising. We help on that front in three primary ways:
- Practice Pitches: Usually a 5-7 minute pitch and 20-30 minutes of Q&A/feedback with 8-12 peers (Rabbu was the most recent “hot seat” participant)
- Office Hours: Discussion about raising seed / Series A capital among peers.
- Investor-Founder Connections: We put investment opportunities in front of the 30+ VCs and angel investors in the GEM (and, sometimes, to relevant investors outside of the community).
We’re holding our next early-stage fundraising office hours next week (Tuesday, December 8th) and have room for a few non-GEM members to join. In addition to founders in the VC/angel trenches, Jonathan Bednarsh and Mark Hurst will be attending to lend their experience and perspective to the conversation.
Google Meeting. Note this is NOT a webinar.
Tuesday December 8th at 11 AM PST / 2 PM EST.
Limited to 15 participants.
Are you a founder actively raising a pre-seed, seed, or Series A interested in attending? Email me your pitch deck (drew at geekestatelabs dot com) and I’ll provide a calendar invite. We have room for about 5 more.
