Every once in a while you run into a great video that explains things very clearly. I keep coming back to one that I saw last November. The video is a recording of the “Funding Your Dream” panel at Garage’s “Art of the Start” Conference. The speakers are:

  • Daniel Ahn, Managing Director – Woodside Fund
  • Susan Mason, General Partner – Onset Ventures
  • Chris Moran, General Manager – Applied Ventures
  • Warren Packard, Managing Director – Draper Fisher Jurvetson
  • Ian Sobieski, Founder and Managing Director – Band of Angels Fund

If you have not seen it, it is well worth the 54 minutes. Topics include:

  • Getting to venture capitalists
  • How to make a presentation
  • The optimal length of a business plan
  • How to handle the valuation process
  • Role changes in the founding team
