About this event

The pressure of raising your first funding round is mounting, the product is shaky and not exactly fitting in as planned, it is taking much longer than anticipated to get traction, and the team is cracking up - how do you show up at your investor meeting?

Early stage funding is hard and that’s why it needs discipline, composure, and focus from the startup team - but how do you achieve all in the midst of all the chaos?

Welcome to our fireside chat with one of the leading early stage investors, business angels, and ecosystems builders in Nordics, Anette Nordvall. She heads Keiretsu Forum Nordics, runs Cross Nordic Capital, is the chairperson at We Don’t Have Time, and has extensive board, ecosystem management, and advisory experience.

In this fireside chat we discuss:

⭐ When is a startup ready to raise funding?

⭐ What homework is needed from the founders for the first round?

⭐ How do you determine early-stage valuation?

⭐ What kind of funding research should you do as the founding team?

⭐ Do introductions work? And how?

⭐ What are tell-tale signs of an uninvestible startup for the investors?

⭐ What works better for a pitch: big vision, or results on ground?

⭐ What is the early stage funding outlook in Nordics in the near future?

The discussion will be moderated by Naimul Abd, Business Advisor & Partnerships Lead at Coompanion Stockholm, serial impact entrepreneur, and Director Startup Grind Stockholm.
