👈 The Underscore VC team gets fundraising questions from early-stage entrepreneurs all the time: How do I get in touch with investors? What progress are VCs looking for at X stage? How much detail should I include in my pitch deck?
The answer is an often unhelpful, “It depends.”
So we’ve packaged some repeatable tactics and best practices designed to get you started on each step of the fundraising process.
In this toolkit, you’ll find resources to help you find and build relationships with VCs, prepare your fundraising materials, and move the process forward. We’ve published these resources as a Coda doc, so you can take notes and save files as you go. The resources are ordered chronologically, and we recommend that you start by reading through them in this order.
Before you dig into the toolkit, you can also take some time to explore our video series on Seed fundraising:
At the end of the day, you’re the expert on your business. Trust your gut. Take what’s helpful, and leave what’s not.
Underscore is an early-stage Boston-based VC firm backing bold entrepreneurs with an aligned community designed to fit each startup's unique needs.
