Happy Sat-urday Stackers,

I was on a panel about fundraising recently and was asked, "general advice for founders who might want to raise money?"

  1. Be honest above all else (importantly also with yourself)
  2. Be excellent
  3. Ask rich people for money (h/t super testnet)

Have an excellent weekend, stackers!
