Startup Investment: Who are your "Friends and Family" (and do they have to be rich)?
The terms "friends and family investors" and "friends and family round" get thrown around a LOT when you're an early stage startup. Which may leave you wondering if you're disadvantaged in raising money because Scrooge McDuck isn't your uncle. In this episode, we talk about what "friends and family" really means, the opportunity of using the network you already have (and what you may not know about the value in that network), and what else besides money is valuable that you can also seek to raise from people around you. And if you ARE the rich uncle, we'd like to talk.
